Articles & Editorials about Satire

If you're looking for information about satire, please check out the following resources on our website. Our satire articles are intended to be punchy, 'human' discourses on satire and are unlikely to be of much use in academia, unless you're specifically pointing at how things are not to be done.



However, genuinely, we have written these articles in order that they are of use giving a background to the discussion and history of satire throughout the ages. From the classic Greek writers to the Romans, all the way up to British witticist, Jonathan Swift and taking a quick glance at online rags whose attempts at satire are viewed with a more objective eye.

"Satire is a sort of glass, wherein beholders do generally discover everybody's face but their own"


Jonathan Swift
