SATIRE THAT BLASTED ART

You may be overwhelmed by the range of selections under the author's portmanteau concept of satire as reaching toward ""creative nihilism and ugly beauty."" However, the selections are marvelous (from Housman's hilarious parody of Greek tragedy to -- of all things -- an excerpt from The Brothers Karamazov), and Clark and Motto's commentary is witty and companionable.
