Editorial Reviews


"A very important book. Margaret Rose's work reaches into many of the central issues for the discussion of modern literature and art. This is one of those books which moves beyond the sometimes narrow theoretical debates of the '70s and '80s to become a general text." Malcolm Bradbury

Book Description

Expanded and revised from the original 1979 text, this analysis and history of theories of parody, from ancient to contemporary times, has substantial new sections on modern and postmodern theories and the uses of parody and pastiche.
