In Ambrose Bierce's "Disintroductions" what is he satirizing and can you please provide a good explanation of the essay,

  • english -

    The essay speaks for itself. The author disliked being casually introduced to people of no consequence whom he did not wish to know. He says the custom is, or was, particuarly rampant in America. If there is any satire, it is in the short sample "disintroduction" between Mr. Black and Mr. White, which is a satire of the politeness with which introductions are made.

    Have you read the essay? It is only about two pages long.
