Stephen King Is Quite An Accomplished Comedian

I am quite excited, after I have finished the tome, to write about Stephen King's experiment in comedic absurdism. While "Danse Macabre" offered intriguing analyses of the horror genre, his work "On Writing" is overflowing with risible satire camouflaged as the "right way to write".

Mr. King has captured the embodiment of linguistic ignorance and the nonsense of prescriptive grammar by writing as if he were serious, which enhances the absurdities therein to near-Voltaire heights.

Excellent work, Mr. King, on your exposition, your satiric exposure, of the arrogance of prescriptivists posessing neither knowledge of linguistics nor education in the history of the English language.
