3 Writers use irony to reflect the real world— one where expectations aren’t always fulfilled and unexpected events surprise us. Irony is the difference between what we expect and what actually happens. Irony

4 There are three basic types of irony: verbal irony situational irony dramatic irony Irony

5 Definition: occurs when someone says one thing but means another Example of Verbal Irony: You get into a wreck and the passenger says, “You’re a great driver!” Verbal Irony

6 Another example: “I’m not sure I’ve read enough books about computers,” said Mr. Manor. Verbal Irony Verbal irony notes: is the simplest kind of irony can become sarcasm if taken to a harsh extreme

12 Example: a fire station burns down Definition: a contrast between what is expected and what actually happens Situational: something happens that we wouldn’t expect to happen Example: a fire station burns down Dramatic: the reader knows something the characters do not Verbal – what is said is different than what is meant Home Alone: We know that Kevin has planted traps every where, but the thieves don’t! You tell someone to break a leg but you mean for them to have good luck

13 Identify the following examples of irony as situational, dramatic, or verbal… 1. George breaks a date with his girlfriend so he can go to a ball game with the guys. At the concession stand, he runs into his girlfriend with another guy.

14 A: SITUATIONAL IRONY We do not expect George to see his girlfriend with another guy.


16 SITUATIONAL IRONY We don’t expect a FITNESS CENTER to have an escalator because they cause you to burn LESS calories.

17 3. You are watching a horror movie. You know that the boogey man is waiting for the main character in the closet, but the character doesn’t know and unknowingly opens the closet door.

18 A: DRAMATIC IRONY You, as the audience, know something that the main character does not.

19 5. As you walk outside into the pouring rain, your friend sarcastically comments, “What lovely weather we’re having today.”

20 A: VERBAL IRONY Your friend is saying that it is lovely weather but what she means is just the opposite. It is a very dreary day.

21 7. A police station gets robbed.

22 A: SITUATIONAL IRONY  We wouldn’t expect a POLICE STATION to get robbed. They investigate robberies!

23 9. Your date for the school dance shows up in ripped jeans and a stained t-shirt. With a smirk, you say, “Oh! I see you dressed up for the occasion.”

24 A: VERBAL IRONY  What you’ve said is different than what you mean. You mean that your date hasn’t bother to dress up at all, but that isn’t what you said!

25 11. When watching a talk show, the audience knows why a person has been brought on the show. However, the person in the chair does not know that they are going to be reunited with a long lost friend.
