Transcript of Satire


Horatian Satire:
Juvenalian Satire:
characterized by a good-natured, tolerant sense of humor about human folly
often a general comment of the failings of mankind (“telling the truth with a smile”)

characterized by biting sarcasm, bitter irony, moral indignation, pessimism, and an antagonistic tone emphasizes criticism more than humor

Satire is the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context
of contemporary politics and other
topical issues.

It combines criticism with humor in
an attempt to change what is seen
as wrong.

Two Types of Satire

Techniques Used
