Intro. to Irony RL.06 Lesson Objective I can explain how suspense or humor is created by the reader having a different point of view from the characters. Essential Questions 1. What is point of view? 2. What is dramatic irony? 3. How can the differences between the

audience and characters points of view create humor or suspense (e.g. dramatic irony)? Dramatic Irony This occurs when the reader or audience understands more about the events of a story than a character. Examples:

In a scary movie, the character walks into a house and the audience knows the killer is in the house. In Romeo and Juliet, Romeo thinks Juliet is dead and the audience knows she is not. Two people are engage to be married but the audience knows that the man is planning to run away with another woman. Situational Irony This occurs when what actually happens is the

opposite of what is expected or appropriate. Examples: A fire station burns down The marriage counselor files for divorce The police station gets robbed Posting on Facebook complaining how useless Facebook is Verbal Irony

A character says one thing but really means the opposite. Examples: This chair is as comfortable as sitting on nails. That dog is as friendly as a rattlesnake. I enjoyed the movie as much as getting a root canal. The steak was as tender as a leather boot.

She remained patient and continued to try to help him until the end of the meal, when he left her a quarter for a tip. She replied on his way out, Thank you for the generous tip, Mister.

The rapper Eminen is well-known for his song writing ability, but he is equally known for his shockingly profane and obscene lyrical context. Eminem has made a fortune selling his curse filled songs to millions of children around the world. But, on a 60 Minutes interview, Eminem claimed that there was no swearing in his own home and that his children were not allowed to play music with curse words, including his own tracks.
