A satirist or a writer of satire is one who deals with the theme of criticizing in a humorous manner the various issues he/ she finds problematic. Satire is used by the writer to indirectly address the issues that he/ she addresses.
Irony is the strongest tool of satire with the use of the technique to present sharp views. Also, allusion, hyperbole and juxtaposition are all used in the satiric writing as tools of the trade. They provide the writer with a great means of addressing the issue without the need to directly address it, thus providing an alternate means of criticizing or talking about anything. Euphony is the technique which has a positive connotation, with it suggesting a positive sounding of the words. Whereas satire is the negative connotation for the way things are represented.
