Mystification: “A deception that ends in revelation. An author creates a text that successfully mimics a conventional or recognized form, such as a novel… The imitative text contains ironic clues that give away its true status as a fake. The clues lead the attentive reader along the path of deception to discovery of the fake… it is a trick that teaches, an illusion that reveals and an artifice that manifests its own contrivance.”
