Product Description


"I find the book to be a significant contribution to the study of British 20th century satire. It is full of interesting insights on the satirical works of Private Eye magazine and other uniquely British characters and events. The chapter on the legal repercussions of satire is a must-read." Salvatore Attardo, Editor-in-chief, HUMOR. International Journal of Humor Research. "This is an excellent book. As always, Paul Simpson writes clearly and humorously, using interesting and enlightening examples while at the same time giving the reader new insights and perspectives in an already much studied area. I would recommend anyone who has an interest in satire, be they linguist or literary critic, seasoned academic or beginning student, to read this book - they will find it a rewarding experience." Malcolm Coulthard, University of Birmingham" --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
