Irony

6 07 2006

 Irony is an implied discrepancy between what is said and what is meant.
Three kinds of irony:

    1. verbal irony is when an author says one thing and means something else.
    2. dramatic irony is when an audience perceives something that a character in the literature does not know.
    3. irony of situation is a discrepency between the expected result and actual results.

Example:
“A fine thing indeed!” he muttered to himself.
