Satire
Satire is any literary work that makes fun of vices, follies, stupidities, abuses, or wickedness. An example of satire can be found in, Gerald Durrell's Managerie Manor. [AM] {CL}
Wherever wit is employed to expose something foolish or vicious to criticism satire exists. Whether it is in song or sermon, in painting or political debate, on television or in the movies. In this sense satire is everywhere. "Satire" is a changeable term. Together with its derivatives, it is one of the most heavily worked literary titles and one of the most unfocused. [RA] {EB}
