Post subject: Cabell acknowledged as a menippean Reply with quote

I thought he was, but here at least one commenter counts James Branch Cabell (along with James Joyce) as a menippean satarist.

"O'Brien was exposed to the Menippean tradition through the modern literature he is known to have admired, including works by James Joyce, Aldous Huxley, Søren Kierkegaard and James Branch Cabell, but he may also have encountered it in the course of his study of medieval Irish literature..."
