The piece is effective since readers become engaged in thinking about actual problems and real solutions. If a writer publicizes an unimaginable idea, then it is more likely to catch the reader’s attention compared to a serious piece of work.

After an economic depression in the 1930s, Americans underwent a phase of joy and expressed their excitement in a series of trends. One of the movements was the obsession over flamingos and the color pink. In the essay “The Plastic Pink Flamingo: A Natural History” by Jennifer Price, she talks about this vivacious tendency, but in reality she is mocking U.S. culture with her diction, tone, and allusions to show how Americans get easily obsessed with trends. Although she never clearly states her opinion of this trend, her point of view on U.S. culture can be seen through her word choice.
Satire is used in many works of literature and it uses sarcasm, irony, or ridicule. This is used to try and effect political or social changes or even prevent it. It can also be used in only a part of a work or throughout the whole work. Washington Irving uses satire throughout his work, “The Devil and Tom Walker.” In this work, Irving uses satire to ridicule Puritan New Englanders of the 1700s.
Irony is used through out “A Modest Proposal”, but in my opinion, the most ironic is the title. “A Modest Proposal”? How is there anything modest about Swift’s proposal?
