How are we to think of satire if it has ceased to exist as a discrete genre? This study proposes a novel solution, understanding the satiric in the postwar era as a set of writing practices: figures of inversion, myth-making, and citation. By showing how writers and theorists alike deploy these devices in new contexts, this book reexamines the link between German postwar writing and the history of satire, and between literature and theory.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Admirably structured, genorously researched, and written in sophisticated prose, The Ends of Satire is highly recommended reading for those interested in analyses of selected works by prominent authors like Elfriede Jelinek, Thomas Bernhard, and Thomas Meinecke. lt is further recommended to those invested in thought-provoking explomtions of intertextuality, authorship, and the meaning of writing and reading. For those specifically interested in what happened to "satire after satire" (207), it is quite simply a must."
Lars Richter in: Seminar LIII, 416-418
