Klein 2006/2017 Satire & Parody & Irony & Ridicule Will Ferrel spoofing George W. Bush on Global Warming:   How to Write a Satire:   Simpson’s Satire for classroom:   Iphone 5 Satire:   Definition of Satire: Satire is a literary attack through ridicule, irony, and parody. An author uses satire out of a desire to reform as well as discredit. Satire differs from humor. The satirist has stylistic “weapons” at his disposal. Keeping track of an author’s use of satire plays an important role in understanding the author’s larger purpose in their writing. Some of the “weapons” of satire are: Definition of Varronian Satire: A kind of satire that is non-metrical or prose, it consists of dialogue between two speakers or more in a narrative framework, not a poem or song. Definition of Juvenalian Satire: This is named after one of the famous classical Latin satirists, Juvenal who in fact had a sharp edge and thus this type of satire tends to be more severe and harsh ridicule. This term is usually used to describe this type of satire in verse or poetry, not prose. Definition of Horatian Satire: This is a named after one of the famous classical Latin satirists, Horace, who in fact had a more gentle, general and good nature, thus this type of satire tends to be more for amusement and urbaneness (urbane: showing sophistication, refinement, or courtesy) as opposed to the Juvenalian satire above.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
