IRONY
  • This is a very apropos definition because irony is simply this:
  • WHEN SOMETHING HAPPENS DIFFERENTLY FROM WHAT IS EXPECTED.
irony three types
IRONY (THREE TYPES)
  • In class, we deal with three distinct types of IRONY.
    • SITUATIONAL
    • DRAMATIC
    • VERBAL
situational irony
SITUATIONAL IRONY
  • SITUATIONAL IRONY occurs when events turn out opposite of expected.
  • With situational irony, we, as the reader, ARE SURPRISED at the outcome of the event.
example of situational
EXAMPLE OF SITUATIONAL
  • The average cost of rehabilitating a seal after the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska was $80,000. At a special ceremony, two of the most expensively saved animals were released back into the wild amid cheers and applause from onlookers. A minute later, they were both eaten by a killer whale.
dramatic irony
DRAMATIC IRONY
  • Saying or doing something while unaware of its ironic contrast with the whole truth.
  • With DRAMATIC irony, we the reader know something that a character is unaware of.
  • The CHARACTER is SURPRISED.
    • EX:A character says, “This is the happiest day of my life,” and the audience knows what the character doesn’t—his family has just died in a plane crash.
verbal irony
VERBAL IRONY
  • Verbal irony is when you say one thing, but really mean something else.
  • You know what I mean?
  • Sometimes verbal irony can be sarcasm…but not always.
