Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Palmeri (English, U. of Miami) asserts that satire parodies both the established view of the world and that of its opponents, offering its own distincitive critical perspective. He applies his theory to five works, each of which has generated controversy about the genre to which it belongs. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
