Verbal Irony

  • Ex.) A girl has been bothering her boyfriend to
    ask her to prom. When he finally does ask, she
    says, What a surprise.
  • Ex.) You get an ugly shirt for Christmas and say,
    Oh, you shouldnt have.

Situational Irony

    expectations of the characters or reader

  • The police station was robbed.
  • The teacher failed the test.

Dramatic Irony

    not

    attracted to at the party is a Capulet. Romeo
    doesnt know that.

Example
  • Act 4 Scene 1 lines 6-15
  • Paris Immoderately she weeps for Tybalt's death,
  • And therefore have I talked little of love
  • For Venus smiles not in a house of tears.
  • Now, sir, her father counts it dangerous
  • That she do give her sorrow so much sway,
  • And in his wisdom hastens our marriage
  • To stop the inundation of her tears,
  • Which, too much minded by herself alone,
  • May be put from her by society
  • Now do you know the reason of his haste.

Example
  • Romeo returns to Verona. He find Juliet drugged,
    in a death-like sleep. He assumes she is dead and
    kills himself. When Juliet wakes up and finds him
    dead, she kills herself with his knife.

    just not the way the audience hoped.

    him.
