Transcript of Irony In Of Mice and Men

Definition: Something that goes the other way when expected the other.

Example 5
Example 2
When George shot Lennie in the back of the head with a lugger. This is ironic because no one expected it to happen. This was ironic because Lennie and George were best friends and people don't expect a person to shoot their best friend in the back of the head.
Verbal: It is ironic how Lennie's last name is 'Small' when he is huge.
Example 3
In the beggining of the story George tells Lennie how he could have had a good life without him. However in the end of the book when George kills Lennie he is devastated and is depressive.
Irony In Of Mice and Men
Types of Irony:

George still stared morosely at the fire. "When I think of the swell time I could have without you, I go nut. I never get no peace." (pg.12)
"What's your name?"
"George Milton"
"And what's yous?"
George said, "His name's Lennie Small." (pg.21)

She took Lennie's hand and put it on her head...Lennie said, "Oh! That's nice," and he strocked harder. (pg.91)
It is dramatic irony because the reader knows that Curley's wife is allowing Lennie to stroke her hair to get close to him, but he thinks that she is just being friendly and nice.
Example 4
Example 1
"Of Mice and Men"
Verbal: Since the book is related to the poem by Robert Burns called 'To a Mouse' there are different roles in their lives. The 'Men' in the book and in the poem have to plan and think about the future. However the 'Mice' does need to go through these trouble. It is ironic how Lennie is supposed to be more of a the 'Men in the story, but instead is more like a the 'Mice'.
