Sense and Nonsensibility: Lampoons of Learning and Literature0 0 5 Scritto da: Lawrence Douglas, Alexander George
At last, the thinking person's take on the life of the mind in today's increasingly mindless age. Sense and Nonsensibility pokes fun at everyone from spoof-proof scholars to pompous professors; from anal-retentive authors to plagiarizing poets; from snake-oil therapists to bestselling illiterati.
This singular collection by Professors Lawrence Douglas and Alexander George brings together their most popular pieces, along with many brand-new ones, including:
The Academy Awards for novels -- with categories for "Best Female Protagonist -- Doomed," "Best Narrator -- Unreliable," and "Best Novel -- Unfinishable by Reader"
Home Shopping University -- offering the greatest ideas in Western history at rock-bottom prices
I'm Okay, I'm Okay: Accepting Narcissism -- the best in "Self-helplessness books"
The Penis Orations -- Iron Man's answer to The Vagina Monologues
"Ask the Academic Ethicist" -- their notorious advice column, which has shocked higher education
