“We maintain that, far from converting virtue into a paradox, and degrading truth by ridicule, Parody will only strike at
what is chimerical and false ; it is not a piece of buffoonery so much as a critical exposition. What do we parody but the absurdities
of writers, who frequently make their heroes act against nature, common-sense, and truth? After all, it is the public, not we, who are
the authors of these LARODIES."
