Hector Berrones Jasso The Restoration This period became known as the Age of the Reason, because people use reason, not faith, to make sense of the world. Critics argue that much of the literature written in the Restoration Period is guided towards ridiculing the corruption and flaws of the English society of the time.

Satire is a literary work that attacks or pokes fun at vices, abuses, stupidity, and/or any other fault or imperfection. Satire may make the reader laugh at, or feel disgust for, the person or thing satirized. Impishly or sardonically, it criticizes someone or something, using wit and clever wording and sometimes makes outrageous assertions or claims. The main purpose of a satire is to spur readers to remedy the problem under discussion. The main weapon of the satirist is verbal irony, a figure of speech in which words are used to ridicule a person or thing by conveying a meaning that is the opposite of what the words say.
