"This study advances the reader's understanding of satire by providing a critical account of its history among modern critics. . . Bogel's book is remarkably inventive and challenging; it raises the bar of understanding of Augustan satire in particular, and more generally of satire as a literary category."—Choice, October 2001,Vol. 39., No. 2
"Some part of Bogel's survey of satire from Jonson to Byron will be of interest to regular BHR readers and the entire book will delight and inform the Renaissance scholars who wish to see their specialty in perspective."—Bibliotheque d'Humanisme et Renaissance, 2001
"Fredric Bogel's The Difference Satire Makes is a powerful, insightful, and genuinely original meditation on Augustan satire that all students of satire will need to read."—John Richetti, University of Pennsylvania
"Fredric Bogel establishes a sophisticated new theory of satire through superb close readings of English Augustan texts. The first thorough reassessment of the satiric mode in almost half a century, The Difference Satire Makes is a major—and should prove an enduring—contribution to the field of literary study."—Adam Potkay, The College of William and Mary, author of The Passion for Happiness: Samuel Johnson and David Hume
