S TORY E LEMENTS ~ I RONY We started looking at Irony yesterday. Irony the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning. Today we will go over the different types of irony. There are 4 types: 1. Verbal Irony 2. Dramatic Irony 3. Situational Irony 4. Cosmic Irony
V ERBAL IRONY ironyirony in which a person says or writes one thing and means another, or uses words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of the literal meaning.which For example, if a person steps in big puddle of water by mistake, and his/her friend smiles kindly, starts to help his friend up and remarks, "well now, don't you have all the luck!"
D RAMATIC I RONY irony that is inherent in speeches or a situation of a drama and is understood by the audience but not grasped by the characters in the play. the audience's or reader's knowledge of events or individuals surpasses that of the characters. For example, In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet…when Romeo finds Juliet in a drugged sleep, he assumes her to be dead and kills himself. Upon awakening to find her dead lover beside her, Juliet then kills herself.
S ITUATIONAL I RONY an outcome that turns out to be very different from what was expected; the difference between what is expected to happen and what actually does."

The President doesn't need a home makeover, he lives in one of the most amazing houses in America! Also, he can already get anything he wants changed. The irony is that he had just as much chance as of winning as other people who entered the contest.

For example…when a UPS driver on his way to deliver parts to a hospital has a serious accident, is taken to the same hospital by ambulance, but the hospital can't perform necessary tests because one of its machines is down and the parts to fix it are in the driver's wrecked van
F ORESHADOWING When an author gives you hints of something that is going to happen later in the story, either good or bad. Foreshadowing always points back to the conflict. Authors weave this technique into their craft - whether in dialogue, description, or the attitudes and reactions of the characters -- to build tension and suspense to keep their readers engaged.
S USPENSE a feeling of uncertainty and anxiety about the outcome of certain actions in a story The further along the story progresses the more intense or suspenseful the reader feels…
