There are many ways to parody a book.
But if you want to be an expert on parodies, you’ll need to understand them in the context of the book.
In this post, I’ll describe some parodies of famous works of literature, and share some ideas on how to create a parody that can be used to bring the reader up to speed.
The parodies are all written in the form of a simple list of words that is used to describe the style of a work of fiction or nonfiction, and then a list of sentences that describe a certain type of parodic device.
The dictionary definition of parody: “A form of satirical writing intended to be humorous, or satirical, to a literary, artistic, scientific, philosophical, political, or other group of people or objects, esp. a literary work.”
Here’s an example of a parody from an early work of Shakespeare, Henry IV, from his play “Macbeth” (1623): Macbeth: Now we see you’re mad at me, so let’s get some of your fellow soldiers together, and see what you’ll do.
[laughter] Now this is a classic parody, but there’s no denying that it’s a brilliant parody, one that’s a real classic.
There are some great parodies out there that you can look up online, like this one from the BBC website.
But, in the case of the “MacBeth” parodys, the idea is that Shakespeare was mad at the English and so he took a series of actionable decisions, such as giving a bunch of soldiers a bunch to eat, to which they replied, “Well, we’ll eat them ourselves.”
But he didn’t stop there.
He then gave a bunch more soldiers food, and he had them all shoot each other.
The reason is that in order to make it funnier, he’d had to make the whole thing a bit more dramatic, and so the soldiers would have more fun shooting each other than they would if he’d just let them eat themselves.
This is what I call a parodic sentence, and this is what parodists call a humorous sentence.
The irony of this joke is that the soldiers in the play are all dead, but the author has just added some kind of a “happy ending.”
So the humor is on the edge of the edge, and Shakespeare is not at all mad.
But the parodic sentences are funny, because the reader can’t help but feel that something is going on, that something that is not in the text is there, that this is an important aspect of the play that needs to be explained.
The same idea applies to the “Paradise Lost” parody from the Shakespearean tragedy “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” written in 1640.
There, the story takes place in the year 1600, and the main character, Sebastian, is the son of a wealthy merchant, and his mother is a beautiful, wealthy woman.
Sebastian is the heir to the merchant family, and at the end of the story, he is given the gift of Paradise Lost by his mother, who had promised to give him the treasure if he helped her with her affairs.
Sebastian’s mother and her lover have two sons, one of whom is given Paradise Lost at the very end of “A Christmas Carol.”
Sebastian has no idea what it is, but he knows he has a right to it, because he is the only son of the merchant who will have it.
The story ends with the reader wondering if Sebastian really knows what it’s for, but that’s not quite true, because there’s a third son who also gets it.
This third son is a prince who is actually given Paradise.
He gets it, and Sebastian goes on to save the kingdom.
He makes Sebastian’s life a bit easier by having him help him in his quest to find the treasure.
And that’s what parodic is all about: explaining things that don’t exist.
You don’t have to know anything about the characters in the story to be able to do a parody.
You can make a parody of Shakespeare or any other famous work of literature that you know well and then make fun of the language, or the setting, or even the characters.
In the case that a parodist has a good idea of the author’s intent, you can even make a parodies based on things that the author doesn’t actually say.
This isn’t to say that the parodistic text is a complete blank slate.
There will be things that are not true, and you might have to adjust the parody to fit the story.
You might have a little bit of a revision of the original text, and it might even have to be slightly altered in some places, but you can’t make a complete rewriting of the entire text.
This makes parodying difficult, because it is difficult to make a completely new
