What literary form has remained contemporary for over two thousand years? Satire, of course! Every age has its mockers, whether they be political cartoonists, angry poets, or bemused novelists lamenting the literary trends of the day.
Prestwick House's brand-new introduction to satire encompasses its whole history, from beginnings to modern times; it covers poems, newspaper editorials, and fiction as well as satire in other media. If you and your students are looking for a way to connect literature, politics, and history, this is a great place to start.
