In this definitive work, Margaret Rose presents an analysis and history of theories of parody from ancient to contemporary times. Her earlier Parody/Meta-fiction (1979) was influential in broadening awareness of parody as a "double-coded" device that could be used for more than mere ridicule. In the present study she both expands and revises the introductory section of her 1979 text and adds substantial new sections on modern and postmodern theories and uses of parody and pastiche that analyze the work of theorists and writers including Bakhtin and Eco.

"A very important book. Margaret Rose's work reaches into many of the central issues for the discussion of modern literature and art. This is one of those books which moves beyond the sometimes narrow theoretical debates of the '70s and '80s to become a general text." Malcolm Bradbury Expanded and revised from the original 1979 text, this analysis and history of theories of parody, from ancient to contemporary times, has substantial new sections on modern and postmodern theories and the uses of parody and pastiche.

    Clever, insightful explanation of how we are part of a perpetual dialogue, as long as we are part of culture.
