Menippean satire

Bahktin is a fan of Menippean satire, which he describes as "dialogic, full of parodies and travesties, multi-styled, and does not fear elements of bilingualism...Menippean satire can expand into a huge picture, offering a realistic reflection of the socially varied and heteroglot world of contemporary life" (Epic and Novel, p. 27).
