  • Define and use the 3 types of irony.
  • Understand the purpose of each of the 3 types of irony.
what do these 3 passages have in common
What do these 3 passages have in common?
  • 1. After being in class all day you finally go outside to see that it’s raining. You turn to your friend and say, “Lovely weather.”
  • 2. On your way to help with the dishes after Thanksgiving dinner, you drop a stack onto the floor and they shatter. Your younger brother says, “Nicely done. Very graceful.”
  • 3. The night before your EOC test, you stay out partying instead of studying. When you get your test score back you see that you have failed and now have to retake the class next year. When you tell your friend he says, “Guess all that studying paid off.”
  • In all 3 passages, a person is saying something OPPOSITE of what he/she actually means. This is called VERBAL IRONY.
  • Verbal Irony- a statement saying one thing while meaning the opposite, with the purpose of criticizing.
    • Basically sarcasm
    • Can be tricky to identify

(Verbal Irony Example)

  • So, how can you tell it’s verbal irony?

Write down at least 2 ways you can tell verbal irony from the truth.

situational irony
Situational Irony

The average cost of rehabilitating a seal after the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska was $80,000. After rehabilitation, a special ceremony was held where two of the most expensively saved animals were released back into the wild amid cheers and applause from onlookers…(to be continued)

What do you expect to happen after the animals were released?

Situational Irony

The rest of the story…

A minute after both animals were released, they were eaten by a killer whale.

Do you think the onlookers expected this to happen?

This is an example of SITUTATIONAL IRONY.

  • SITUATIONAL IRONY-when a situation turns out differently than expected
    • This type of irony is all about expectations.
    • There has to be a reversal of these expectations for the situation to be ironic.
  • Yes. It is situational irony because there was a reversal of expectations. The situation turned out differently than expected.

The reversal: The armor, which was intended for protection, is what ended up causing harm.



Why isn’t it ironic?

Because it’s just an unfortunate scenario; there’s no reversal of expectations. Just because there is a drawer in a kitchen does not mean you will find any knives in it.

is this situational irony2
Is this Situational Irony?

Iraqi terrorist, KhayRahnajet didn’t pay enough postage on a letter bomb. It came back with “return to sender” stamped on it. Forgetting it was the bomb, he opened it and was blown to bits.

What was expected? Was there a reversal of expectations? Is it ironic?

After listening to the story, answer the following questions:

  • Is the situation in the story ironic?
  • Why or why isn’t it ironic?
  • What was expected to happen in the story? What really happened?
  • How is this a reversal of expectations?
dramatic irony
Dramatic Irony

(Dramatic Irony Example)

After watching this video…

  • Write what you think is the definition of dramatic irony.
  • Write 1 example of dramatic irony.

Dramatic Irony-when the audience (reader) knows something the characters do not.

Dramatic Irony

What do we know that the characters do not?

When Romeo goes to see Juliet, she has taken a poison that makes her appear dead. Seeing her lying “dead,” he takes his own life because he doesn’t want to live without her. Upon waking from her poisoned state, she sees him dead and takes her own life – for real.

Write in your notebook what you know that the characters do not.
