Stop trying to make yourself look smart by cutting down other people. Be civil for once. Satire is useful and interesting. Snark is easy and lowbrow.

Can't wait to learn what all my English teacher friends think of this.

As a first-year teacher of English, I found myself taking notes and gleaning ideas left and right. I disagreed with some of Denby's ideas about the literature and with some of his comments (though I'm with him on Shakespeare!), and I don't expect to take a strategy similar to the ones in the book. But the "tactical" ideas ... well worth a read!

So... what is snark?

I think I had a better idea before starting this book. The author just seemed to be on a tirade against mean-spirited humor. But then some is okay if it's ironic or clever.
