How are these allegories?
Satire's little brother: Parody
The major differences between Satire and Parody:
(Adapted from Differencebetween.net)
- both have humor but different GOALS.
- Satire - social or political change; it depicts (shows) anger or frustration, and the humor makes that strong emotion bearable.
SATIRE = HUMOR + ANGER (SOCIAL/POLITICAL)
- Parody - just mocking, might anger or upset people, but it's really just for entertainment, not meant to influence society.
PARODY = HUMOR (ENTERTAINMENT)
