Rashell Khan

Parody is the imitation of a victim's style/mannerism in order to make fun of this style/manneris.

Ex: Byron writes Don Juan in stilted, redundant poetry in order to make fun of Robert Southey, a bad poet. By veining his criticism of bad poetry in an imitation thereof, Byron adds a layer of irony to his art.
