Parody, Satire, and Tribute

Postby millerdan2009 » Thu Jul 16, 2015 5:21 pm

Hi, all,

Since the beginning of SF/F, writers other than the original have seen fit to write new works that play on the originals, for laughs. Some—such as National Lampoon's Doon and The Harvard Lampoon's Bored of the Rings—fall pretty clearly (or do they?) into the realm of parody, but MAD magazine, most notably, refers to its takes as satire. Yet other such adaptations seem more respectful, and theoretically qualify as tribute more than either satire or parody. Where are the lines between these distinctions? Can parody be more literarily worthwhile than satire? Come explore these and other questions with Arisia, and see what we can glean from the issue.
