Scholarly satire …

 …. ‘Loud-mouthed bully’: CS Lewis satirised Oxford peer in secret poems. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

“Lewis took an immediate and intense dislike to Wyld, partly because he considered the content of the lectures to be elementary and self-evident. But he also objected to Wyld’s manner: his snobbery and tendency to harangue his audience for coming in late, not concentrating and not knowing the answers to the questions he fired at them.”
