Discussion Board #3-Satire
Satire is used to bring attention (in an absurd way) to a social issue.
Ultimately, satire is used to bring about social change. Using specifics from
both the present and the past, choose a modern comedian or TV show that
uses satire and connect that to the kind of satire used in Hogarth’s Marriage a
la Mode paintings, Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels and/or Mozart’s Marriage of
Figaro opera. Be sure to compare the kinds of social changes the satirists
wanted in the 18th century and the social changes satirists want today.
