Act 3 Scenes 4 & 5 Irony
Today’s Objectives I can identify and understand situational, dramatic, and verbal irony used by Shakespeare. I can understand the effect irony has on literature.
Friar’s Plan (page 178, Lines ) Go to Juliet’s and comfort her Leave before daybreak Go to the city of Mantua You will live there until we find the right time to make your marriage public & stop the fighting between the 2 families The Prince will then end the banishment You can return and live a happy life with Juliet
Review: Situational Irony When a character makes a decision and the outcome is different from what they expected 3.4 Lord Capulet wants Juliet to be happy, so he sets up the marriage to Paris-instead this decision makes her upset
Dramatic Irony When the audience knows something the characters do not *Makes the audience become more dramatic The Capulets think that Juliet is crying over Tybalt, but the audience knows she is really crying over Romeo’s banishment. Lord Capulet arranges the marriage between Paris and Juliet, and the audience knows she is already married to Romeo.
3.5 Verbal Irony When a character says something, but means the opposite. Page 194, Lines (Example 1) Lady Capulet hears: “Indeed, I never shall be satisfied with Romeo, till I behold him dead. Is my poor heart for a kinsman vexed. Juliet means: “Indeed, I never shall be satisfied with Romeo, till I behold him. Dead is my poor heart for a kinsman vexed.
3.5 Verbal Irony Page 194, Lines “Madam, if you could find out but a man to bear a poison, I would temper it, That Romeo should, upon receipt thereof, soon sleep in quiet.” – Temper: Mix it (Lady Capulet) – Temper: Dilute it (Juliet)
