The three types of irony Dramatic irony - A situation in which the audience knows something about present or future circumstances that the character does not know Example - 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.
Verbal irony - A contradiction of expectation between what is said and what is meant Example - “Yet Brutus says he was ambitious; And Brutus is an honourable man". - Julius Caesar Note: This is not the same literary device as an oxymoron!
Situational irony - A contradiction of expectation between what might be expected and what actually occurs often connected to a fatalistic or pessimistic view of life Example – Water, water, every where, And all the boards did shrink ; Water, water, every where, Nor any drop to drink

Isn’t it ironic? Listen to Ironic by Alanis Morissette Does the song depict true irony?
Is it really ironic? An old man turned ninety-eight. He won the lottery and died the next day... of chronic emphysema from inhalation of the latex particles scratched off decades' worth of lottery tickets. A black fly in your Chardonnay... poured to celebrate the successful fumigation of your recently purchased vineyard in southern France. A death row pardon two minutes too late... because the governor was too busy watching Dead Man Walking to grant clemency any earlier. Rain on your wedding day... to Ra, the Egyptian sun-god. A free ride when you've already paid... all of your money to the good-natured cab driver when you mistook him for a mugger. emphysemalottery ticketsDead Man Walking
