ABSTRACT
The article discusses the contributions of S. J. Perelman in literature. It mentions that S. J. Perelman is a great satirist that didn't allowed himself to lapse into the self-pitying whine. It also mentions that his humor is said to be civil, saving and have an irrepressible sense of whimsy. Moreover, his satirical essays are regularly featured in the "The New Yorker" for years and his screenplays were characterized by shameless descents into groan-eliciting puns and others.
