Identifying Concrete Details & Examples

Juvenalian Examples

Work Time

With your classmates, take a look at the examples everyone has selected. As you take turns reading your examples aloud and talking about them, take notes and think about the following questions.

  • Which examples are the most entertaining? How do concrete details play a part?
  • Which are the harshest?
  • Are there any that are disturbing or that go too far?
  • Why make criticisms this way, in a satirical format?
