    As nouns the difference between parody and burlesque is that parody is a work or performance that imitates another work or performance with ridicule or irony while burlesque is a derisive art form that mocks by imitation; a parody. As verbs the difference between parody and burlesque is that parody is to make a parody of something while burlesque is to make a parody of. This book approaches parody as a literary form that has assumed diverse forms and functions throughout history. The author handles this diversity by classifying parody according to its objects of imitation and specifying three major parodic kinds: parody directed at texts and personal styles, parody directed at genre, and parody directed at discourse.

It is often and perhaps best described as “an incongruous imitation.” The purpose of burlesque literature is to imitate the manner or the subject matter of a “serious” literary genre, author, or work through a comic inversion. Imitations of manner might include the form or the style, whereas imitation of matter is meant to satirize the subject. The editor in his introduction suggests a spectrum comprising pastiche, parody and burlesque. There are examples of all three styles in this book.

This book is intended to fill a gap in our literary survey of burlesque and parody in English book. The author desired not merely to recount the annals of the comic muse, but to present burlesque as a serious art, a long- established mode of criticism, which is often far more incisive, and certainly more economical than the heavy review to which the public has been accustomed since the days of Dryden.
