Exploring Genre Satire

PUBLISHER: Phoenix Education Australia
FORMAT: Paperback

Satire remains one of the most powerful means of censuring human flaws and foibles on either a societal or personal level. It incorporates wide-ranging literary and media forms and can vary in tone from light-hearted ridicule to scathing condemnation. Wrongdoing has been targeted in various ways and mediums throughout the centuries but the best satire has shown the potential to trigger positive change and reform. Criticism can be direct or inferred but absurdity can also be mocked for its own sake. Regardless of purpose and style however, audiences are typically encouraged to see values, individuals or institutions within their world through a satiric lens.
The books in the ‘Exploring Genre and Style’ series provide in-depth analysis and activities to help students evaluate, interpret and articulate their understanding of representative texts. The changing face of satire over time as well as the conventions and techniques have been examined to explore the many reasons behind the enduring popularity of satire. Recurring themes and stylistic elements are also evaluated alongside changing historical, social and literary context and shifting societal views, values and ‘norms’. The aim has been to help teachers develop student understanding, critical evaluation and the development of personal interpretation
