1 Types of Satire Chaucer and the Pearl Poet

2 There are two types of satire: Horatian and Juvenalian Horatian satire is: tolerant, witty, wise and self-effacing Juvenalian satire is: angry, caustic, resentful, personal Menippean satire is named after Menippus, and most closely resembles Juvenal's ideas on satire; however, it lacks the focus of a primary target. Rather than a single target, it takes a scattergun approach that aims poisonous prongs at multiple targets. As well as not sustaining narrative and being more rhapsodic, Menippean satire is also more mental. That said, this type of humor is typically baser at the same time.
