BROWSE_DETAIL_TAB_ABSTRACT

The aim of this dissertation is to study Peter Barnes’ plays, The Ruling Class (1968),Leonardo’s Last Supper (1969), Noonday Demons (1969), and Dreaming (1969), asexamples of modern Menippean satire. To this end, satire as a genre is studied with itsetymology, origins, definitions, characteristics, and its types. In contrast to formalverse satire, that is defined as a rhetorical attack upon a particular vice and includespraise for its opposite virtue in the midst of an argument, Menippean satire is difficultto define because of its protean structure. Therefore, whilst defining Menippean satireit is helpful to ask what Menippean satire ‘does’ instead of what Menippean satire ‘is’.Menippean satire is a mingling of prose and poetry in its simplest sense. In addition, italways desires to reject any sort of absolutes regarding norms, cultural, religious orphilosophical dogmas by creating a carnivalesque atmosphere. In order to opposeabsolutes, Menippean satire makes use of parody, irony, intertextuality, juxtapositionsof normally incompatible things, fantasticality, quest theme, any sort of psychologicalabnormalities such as madness and daydreaming, all of which enhance thecarnivalesque quality of the plays. Menippean satire does not offer a resolution at theend of the plays because the genre does not favor any ideology over another but showsall of them as faulty and corrupted. All the features of Menippean satire are found inBarnes’ selected four plays. The dissertation will conclude that because Barnes haswritten about similar themes in Menippean satire form throughout his career his playsmay be considered as examples of modern Menippean satire.
