This lecture will look into the rich world of satire through the lens of Percival Everett. Known for his sharp wit, keen observations, and clever commentary on contemporary society, we will explore Everett’s novel Erasure and how it characterizes the social and cultural issues surrounding author authenticity and truth in literature. Through this discussion of Everett’s work, we will develop a deep appreciation for the art of satire and its power to critique, provoke thought, and entertain.
