To Build a Fire Situational Irony
Transcript of To Build a Fire Situational Irony
By: Allie, Julianna, and Becky
How situational irony helped the plot move
When the unexpected happens.
How the author uses situational irony
The author uses situational irony in the story because when the man got the fire going, the snow from the tree branches fell on him and on the fire.
The snow fell without warning upon the man and the fire, and the fire was dead. Where it burned was a pile of fresh snow.”
Situational irony helped move the plot because the fire went out and he would have to go build a new one.
This is an example of situational irony because the man got excited that he finally got a fire started. Since he started it under a tree, the hot air from the fire made the snow melt and fall onto the fire unexpectedly.
