Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is social satire! She satirizes how marrying is a woman's duty.


Pride and Prejudice is a very good example if you're looking for social satire in literature.

The definition of social satire is usually a witty criticism based off of the flaws in society.

We see this a lot, especially with those political cartoons you probably analyze in your history classes.

International Herald Tribune

If you're looking for a comic like that, this is one from the International Herald Tribune that criticizes society and technology. Not to mention, Of Mice and Men is illustrated with a clever computer mouse.
