Satire and Hypocrisy: Literary Criticism of Lewis’ The Monk - Satire and Hypocrisy: Literary Criticism of Lewis’ The Monk In her essay "Satire in The Monk: Exposure and Reformation", Campbell strives to portray Matthew Lewis' The Monk as a work that is full of and dependent upon satire, yet marks a significant departure from the tradition thereof.

Although satire may be useful in exposing these hypocrisies and false beliefs, it offers no alternatives to these beliefs and is hence a destructive force despite the satirist's pretension...   [tags: Monk] 688 words
