Political Satire


What is it? Create a definition for your glossary based on this description.

“Satire has long been a tool of political criticism. Although the term satire may describe an entire work, a passage, or a tone, its characteristics are shared: among these, it employs comedy or humor; has a target and an ideal to compare it to; and describes folly or vice in detail” (“Who’s Laughing Now? American Political Satire”).

"Who's Laughing Now? American Political Satire." PBS. PBS, 11 July 2003. Web. 06 Nov. 2012.

What are examples of political satire?

Make a list:

We will be reading Lysistrata

  • Written by Aristophanes (447-385 BCE)

  • Great comedic writer of his day

  • One of the first political satirists

  • In Crash Course in History #5 he received the open letter (talked about dog poop, making fun of people, homework, etc.)

  • Often makes fun of famous Athenians in his plays

  • Includes many allusions for his time. We are not going to understand all of these.
