This 20th-century technique seeks to create humor through the use of satirical wit and grotesque situations. Use of this theme can be found in ""Catch-22"", ""A Good Man is Hard to Find"", ""A Modest Proposal"", ""Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"", and many other literary works, as examined by this new volume. Featuring original essays and excerpts from previously published critical analyses, each book in the new Bloom's ""Literary Themes"" series gives students valuable insight into the title's subject theme.
