BIBLE Literary Terms Satire


- Info:

- Satire is a literary term used to ridicule or make fun of human vice or weakness, often with the intent of correcting, or

changing, the subject of the satiric attack.

- Indirect satire conventionally employs the form of a fictional narrative--such as Byron's Don Juan or Swift's Gulliver's


- Good satire does not require perfect symmetry to get the meaning across to a sophisticated reader.

This might spoil the fun and surprise and the Roman aristocrats were very sophisticated.
