Overview

Satiric Inheritance: Rabelais to Sterne by Michael A. Seidel

Arguing that satiric potential is latent in virtually all dispensation, succession, and inheritance narratives, Michael Seidel suggests a new and comprehensive understanding of satire's place in the more general context of narrative theory. The notion of inheritance shares with traditional narrative action the need to transmit and preserve form.

Originally published in 1979.
