What is satire? Satire is a literary genre which has a witty or humorous tone, but which is used to teach a serious lesson or point out some problem or evil in the world. Two paths of social commentary – Wit & Humor (Horatian ) or Critical & Scathing (Juvenalian)
Horatian satire The irony tends to put egg on the people's faces rather than blood on their hands. The sarcasm is the kind that doesn't leave permanent scars. The ridicule is gentle, more laughable than contemptuous, more foolish than frightening.
Juvenalian Satire The irony is tragic – it pulls no punches The sarcasm is bitter – friendships is not an options afterwards The ridicule is harsh and provokes our contempt sooner than our laughter.
