We will be going over this Satire Prezi in class, but take a look if you are still confused!
Satire – A literary work that ridicules its subject through the use of techniques such as exaggeration, reversal, incongruity, and/or parody in order to make a comment or criticism about it.
The following are techniques used to show satire:
Exaggeration – To enlarge, increase, or represent something beyond normal bounds so that it becomes ridiculous and its faults can be seen.
Incongruity – To present things that are out of place or are absurd in relation to its surroundings.
Reversal – To present the opposite of the normal order (e.g., the order of events, hierarchical order).
Parody – To imitate the techniques and/or style of some person, place, or thing
Watch the following video, it is Shrek, and see if you can spot ALL FOUR examples of satire. (Hint: All four ARE present) (This YouTube clip also seems highly legit, and not illegal)
