ENGL 267 Fall 2012 The Art of Satire (W)

Satire is good nasty fun, perennially controversial, and (at its best) a complex art form. This Gateway course begins with eighteenth-century English satires by such writers as Jonathan Swift, Henry Fielding, Jane Austen, and Lord Byron. The second half of the course studies satirical works by Vladimir Nabokov, Flannery O'Connor, and David Foster Wallace, as well as Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart, and Sara Silverman.
