Irony 3 Kinds of Irony What is Irony? Irony is about expectations. Irony: the opposite of what is expected. 3 kinds of irony Verbal

Dramatic Situational Verbal Irony A character says one thing but means the opposite Also called sarcasm or being sarcastic. Examples

The locker room smells really good. Awesome! Another homework packet! Dramatic Irony When the reader understands more about the events of a story than a character. You know something that a character doesnt.

Example Tims parents are proud of the A he got on the test, but we know he cheated. Alex writes a love poem to Judy but we know that Judy loves Devin. Situational Irony When what actually happens is the

opposite of what is expected. Something about the situation is completely unexpected. Example General Sedgwicks last words were, They couldnt hit an elephant at this distance. Bill Gates uses an Apple computer.

Review Something that is ironic is unexpected. If unexpected by a character, its dramatic. If unexpected by everyone, its situational. If its sarcasm, its verbal.
