Since Classical times satirists have claimed to make us better people by mocking us. The results have been often funny, sometimes edifying, and occasionally just plain strange. This class looks at a variety of satirical writing from the seventeenth century to the present day, and at a range of typical targets, such as abstracted scholars, dull conformists, moral hypocrites, and the occasional lawyer.
Prerequisite(s): 6 credit units of 100-level ENG.
Note: Students with credit for ENG 378 may not take this course for credit.
