Transcript of Irony
In the story, Hamlet is out to avenge his father and in the end dies himself to achieve it.
In the play Hamlet, there is fantastilicious irony!
this is ironic because his mother is now his aunt and his uncle is now his father through marriage, or it's just plain creepy....
"My uncle-father, and aunt mother are deceived, .../I am but mad north-north-west” – Hamlet
Types of Irony!
the outcome is different than expected...
The ambulance driver hits an accident victim when arriving at the crash site.
A misfortune that was not predicted and unimaginable.
The Titanic was called "the unsinkable ship", but sunk on its first voyage after hitting an iceberg.
In a book, play or film, where the characters had no idea what was going on, but the audience did.
example again?... sigh
Romeo thinks that Juliet is dead when he sees her in the tomb, but the audience knows that Juliet is really just drugged.
Meaning the opposite of what you are saying. (also called verbal.)
Example? Ok, pal.
AP English is sooooooooo
Iron man is very ironic because he is not made of iron but really a gold titanium alloy, duh.
Iron Man, Ironic?
"I am Iron Man!
Has he lost his mind?
Can he see or is he blind?
Can he walk at all
Or if he moves will he fall?"
Sources!!!!!! Boy, you people sure are needy.
Hit Es-cape!!! that's funny, it's spelled just like "escape"
NOOO! not the Butler!
Gertrude- "More matter, with less art."
Polonius- "Madam, I swear I use no art at all.
That he is mad, 'tis true: 'tis true 'tis pity;
And pity 'tis 'tis true. A foolish figure!
But farewell it, for I will use no art.
Mad let us grant him then. And now remains 1195
That we find out the cause of this effect-
Or rather say, the cause of this defect,
For this effect defective comes by cause.
Thus it remains, and the remainder thus.
The irony in this quote is that Polonius is saying he uses no art in speaking at all, when he is really using a lot of art in speaking in order to impress the queen, who really just wishes for him to tell his point.
