Screener for What is Satire? distributed by Contemporary Arts Media http://www.artfilms.com.au

Students review traditional targets for satire; pompous, domineering and hypocritical people; social, political and religious institutions and traditional uses of satire to amuse, criticize or persuade with varying degrees of subtlety.

In this program, songs, essays, poems and works of fiction drawn from many periods illuminate the origins, development and results of this genre. Satirists such as Swift, Shaw, Woody Allen, and Dorothy Parker are presented.
