Adam Zagajewski, A Defense of Ardor:

Some authors flog consumerist society with the aid of irony; others continue to wage war against religion; still others do battle with the bourgeoisie. At times irony expresses something different — our flounderings in a pluralistic society. And sometimes it simply conceals intellectual poverty.
