HOW IRONIC !

A Presentation By:

Laura Suarez


How ironic

BIG QUESTION !

What is irony ?


How ironic

So what is irony ?

Simply put:

Irony is defined as the difference between what is said and what is meant

what is said and what actually occurs

or between the meaning and what is understood.


How ironic

There are 3 types

to be focused

on in this lesson !

Verbal Irony: A figure of speech in which what is said, is the opposite of what is meant.

Dramatic Irony: Is when a reader/viewer of a work knows something that the character in the work itself does not know.

Situational Irony: When a situation turns out differently than expected, yet somehow seems widely appropriate.

Verbal Irony

Verbal Irony is :

A figure of speech in which what is said, is the opposite of what is meant.

REMEMBER…

So, here is an example...

It is all about SARCASM, one example would be, “That sock smells like roses” after it has been sitting in a gym locker for three months.


How ironic

Dramatic Irony

Psst !

Dramatic Irony is:

when a reader/viewer of a work knows something that the character in the work itself does not know.

So, here is an example...

In a horror movie, suspense is often built up by the use of spooky music. The viewers often know that someone is going to die or get ripped up, or, at least, something is going to jump out because of the music that THEY can hear--and, of course, the characters cannot.


How ironic

Situational Irony

Situational Irony is:

When a situation turns out differently than expected, yet somehow seems widely appropriate.

Look here !

So, here is an example...

You buy yourself something after months of saving and then someone gets it for you for Christmas!

Lyrics !

"Ironic"An old man turned ninety-eightHe won the lottery and died the next dayIt's a black fly in your ChardonnayIt's a death row pardon two minutes too lateAnd isn't it ironic... don't you thinkIt's like rain on your wedding dayIt's a free ride when you've already paidIt's the good advice that you just didn't takeWho would've thought... it figuresMr. Play It Safe was afraid to flyHe packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbyeHe waited his whole damn life to take that flightAnd as the plane crashed down he thought"Well isn't this nice..."And isn't it ironic... don't you think

It's like rain on your wedding dayIt's a free ride when you've already paidIt's the good advice that you just didn't takeWho would've thought... it figures

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on youWhen you think everything's okay and everything's going rightAnd life has a funny way of helping you out whenYou think everything's gone wrong and everything blows upIn your faceA traffic jam when you're already lateA no-smoking sign on your cigarette breakIt's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knifeIt's meeting the man of my dreamsAnd then meeting his beautiful wifeAnd isn't it ironic...don't you thinkA little too ironic...and, yeah, I really do think...It's like rain on your wedding dayIt's a free ride when you've already paidIt's the good advice that you just didn't takeWho would've thought... it figuresLife has a funny way of sneaking up on youLife has a funny, funny way of helping you outHelping you out
