Satire and Book 2 of Utopia



One of the characteristics of utopian fiction is that it critiques social conventions, behaviors, and institutions, often through satire. First, in one paragraph define satire, giving a contemporary example (it can be a text, TV show, movie, photo, or an electronic media artifact, such as a post on Facebook or another social media site). In your paragraph, be sure to include an explanation telling why this example is satirical.


Now, identify one facet of early modern English society (an institution, idea, or behavior) that is satirized in Book 2 of Utopia. In two paragraphs, explain how the satire is developed and why this particular phenomenon is featured in (i.e., is a focus of) Utopia
