01 Fredric V. Bogel, English

The Difference Satire Makes: Rhetoric and Reading from Jonson to Byron (Cornell University Press, 2001). Analyzing Augustan satiric texts, Bogel provides the first extensive assessment of the satiric mode in almost half a century. He re-evaluates the structure of the satiric mode, accepting that satire is based on tension between the satirist and the satiric object, but he adds intimacy and identification to the relationship, establishing a new theory of satire. He asserts that satire must establish or produce difference.
