1 SATIRE REVIEW ENGLISH III

2 SATIRE  Satire is a literary genre that uses irony, wit, and sometimes sarcasm to expose humanity’s vices and imperfections, shedding light on the need for change or reform through ridicule.  There is a satirical spectrum that ranges from HORATIAN SATIRE to JUVENALIAN SATIRE  Horatian satire seeks to criticize rather than attack and is a much gentler, more tolerant and sympathetic form. It’s purpose is to make us laugh at human folly, not hold the subject of the satire up for intense scrutiny.  Juvenalian satire seeks to attack and is a much harsher form. It’s purpose is much more serious and uses heightened and specific language to address the subject of the satire with scrutiny and scorn.

3 SATIRICAL DEVICES – SEE SB PG  IRONY – a mode of expression through words or events that convey a reality different from or opposite of what is expected.  HYPERBOLE – deliberate exaggeration; overstatement  LITOTES – a form of understatement that involves making a point by denying its opposite  CARICATURE – an exaggeration or other distortion of an individual’s prominent features or characteristics to the point of making that individual look ridiculous.  WIT – clever expression, whether aggressive or harmless  SARCASM – intentional mockery, generally directed at another person and intended to hurt; usually involved obvious verbal irony  RIDICULE – words intended to belittle a person or idea and arouse contemptuous laughter  PARODY – exploits the peculiarities of a person’s expression  INVECTIVE – speech or writing that abuses, denounces or attacks
