Product Description
This introductory presentation provides background on satire: types such as Horatian and Juvenalian, as well as techniques such as irony, exaggeration, and understatement. Specific terms such as travesty and incongruity are introduced and defined. Theories of humor are also touched on. The presentation includes image examples as well as links to video resources on Youtube. I use this to introduce my Mark Twain unit--it could be used with any of his work, or with the work of another satirical writer such as Austen or Swift.
