Technically, scatology has been used for various purposes: to shock, to smash puritanical taboos, to exptess hate and disgust, to explain psychological motivation, to satirise, to preach acceptance of the body, to project moral indignation, to shake the fist at God, and to have pure Rabelaisian fun. Above all, modern playwrights have used scatology, verbal and visual, for one great thematic purpose -- as a metaphor for the human condition.
