Satire

Johnathon Swift also used Satire to call out a big poilitical issue in both A Modest Proposal and Gulliver's Travels. He used concepts such as being a giant in the world or the size of an ant, to extreme concepts of using poor Irish children for food and currency. Swift used these tactics to get people to see the issues in the world in a humourous way, but still bring light to a serious situation.

George Orwell used his book Animal Farm to create a satire using animals to represent government officials. Orwell had to do this because he couldn't just call officals out he had to make a literary satire to help people understand the problems in the world.
