  1. The negative vision of the satirist
  2. The satirist's hiding praise

Louis Mac Neice was a famous Irish playwright and poet. He was born on September 12th, 1907 and died on September 3rd, 1963. He was a member of the "thirties poets" which included W. H. Auden, C. Day Lewis and Stephen Spender. He wrote many plays like The Dark Tower and other radio scripts and above all many poems like Letters from Iceland and Collected Poems in 1966 edited by E. R. Dodds. We are going to try to understand how - through a poem which seems to be a criticism of satirists - the poet succeeds in hiding praise.
