"The book addresses a hot topic, using a source that has nowhere been given the attention it deserves. The arguments are subtle, persuasive, and frequently brilliant. It will appeal to a wide reading public—those interested in Jewish history, medieval art history, and the history of France."—William C. Jordan, author of The Great Famine

What is satire? How can we define it? Is it a weapon for radical change or fundamentally conservative? Is satire funny or cruel? Does it always need a target or victim? Combining thematic, theoretical and historical approaches, John T. Gilmore introduces and investigates the tradition of satire from classical models through to the present day. In a lucid and engaging style, Gilmore explores: the moral politics of satire whether satire is universal, historically or geographically limited how satire translates across genres and media the boundaries of free speech and legitimacy. Using examples from ancient Egypt to Charlie Hebdo, from European traditions of formal verse satire to imaginary voyages and alternative universes, newspaper cartoons and YouTube clips, from the Caribbean to China, this comprehensive volume should be of interest to students and scholars of literature, media and cultural studies as well as politics and philosophy.

Maggie Nelson kennt alle Schattierungen und Geheimnisse der Farbe Blau – stolz hütet sie ihre Sammlung blauer Objekte –, und sie kennt alle Künstler, die dem Blau verfallen waren: ob Joni Mitchell, Billie Holiday oder Yves Klein. Aber zugleich nutzt sie die Farbe, um sich selbst zu erkunden. Denn hinter all dem Nachsinnen über Blau verbirgt sich die Geschichte einer tragischen Liebe. Er, der Prinz des Blauen, hat sie verlassen. Also gibt sie sich mit ganzer Kraft dem hin, was von ihm übrig ist: dem Blau. Kaum jemand hat seinen Schmerz auf so poetische, inspirierende Weise seziert, wie Maggie Nelson es hier tut – eine lyrische, philosophische und sehr persönliche Erkundung der eigenen Leidensfähigkeit.
