'''Dorothy Parker''' (1893-1967) was an American poet, critic, and satirist, known for her [[DeadpanSnarker biting wit]]. Her written works specialized in cynicism related to love and romance, how they don't seem to work in practice as they do in idealistic works, and how even people who know this still want love and romance. Some of her shorter works are flat-out memorized in certain circles, and her influence remains in the PopculturalOsmosis for tropes about non-ideal love.
