Satire or Surrender

Sharing Options

“For various reasons, satire is studied today as something of a museum piece, in much the same way that a military historian might analyze a crossbow. The learned and respectable among us have agreed to abandon the use of satire, leaving this particular form of abuse to the buffooneries of late night comedians. Our academicized scholars have gravitated to respectable discourse, along with other forms of surrender” (A Serrated Edge, p. 11).
