eBook's description

'Satire' said Swift 'is a sort of glass, wherein beholders do generally discover everybody's face but their own' . Over the past twenty-four centuries the mirror of satirical literature has itself taken many shapes. Nevertheless, certai n techniq ues continually recur, and certain themes are timeless.

Pol itics, the mismanagement of men by other men, has always been a target of 'Satire' said Swift 'is a sort of glass, wherein beholders do generally discover everybody's face but their own' . Over the past twenty-four centuries the mirror of satirical literature has itself taken many shapes. Nevertheless, certai n techniq ues continually recur, and certain themes are timeless.

Pol itics, the mismanagement of men by other men, has always been a target of satire, as has the war between sexes. The universality of satire is proved by the high development of lampoon and travesty even among primitive peoples; its long roots and its variety are shown by the persistence of allegory, fable, aphorism and other satirical genres in literature. Professor Hodgart analyses satire at some of its most effective moments in Western literature from Aristophanes to Brecht.

His analysis is augmented by a selection of prints and cartoons to show the similarities and differences between the literary and visual media of satire. Matthew Hodgart is Professor of English at the University of Sussex. His interests include both classical and modern literature.

He has written books on Joyce, Samuel Johnson and the ballad. With 14 colour and 49 black and white photographs The cover illustration by Bruno Paul appeared originally in Simplicissimus (1904)
