It is often used to add suspense and interest. It is also used to keep the reader thinking about the moral of the story. Irony Verbal Irony Situational Irony Dramatic Irony The simplest kind of irony. You use it everyday when you say one thing and really mean another. It is often similar to a sarcastic response. Example: When you appear to be sick and someone asks you if you’re okay. You say “Of course!” But in the meantime you are vomiting and fainting. Occurs when a situation turns out to be the opposite of what you thought it would be. Examples: The teacher’s daughter is a High School drop out. The mayor’s wife gets caught stealing. The chef won’t eat his/her own cooking. The barber always needs a hair cut himself. Occurs when the audience knows something that the characters in the story, on the screen, or on the stage do not know. It’s like the audience is more aware of what’s going on than the people in the production. This is used to engage the audience and keep them actively involved in the storyline. In all of the Friday the 13th movies, we know Jason is in the woods. The characters do not. When they go out into the woods we are afraid for them because we know that they are in danger. We scream for them to run, we get excited when they fall, we cringe when we know that Jason is right behind the tree. Irony is a kind of a surprise. It is the difference between what is expected to happen, and what actually does happen. Irony is like a glitch, a twist, or a last minute switch in the game. It is an interruption of events that cause an unexpected outcome. There are three types of irony: Verbal Situational Dramatic Fiona who Jonas is starting to have feelings for ultimately represents all that he hates in his society. She becomes a caretaker for the Old and learns the fine art of Release. When Jonas sees the twin released he hopes that someone nice like Larissa will be in Elsewhere to receive it. This is dramatic irony because we, the reader, know something that Jonas does not…What? Precision of language is ironic because they use it to make things that are not nice sound nice, like release.
