How to Read: Irony

Seeing Irony

Irony is part of life. Things rarely go the way we intend them to, expect them to, or hope they will— which is why authors use irony. Irony mimics life.

Authors use irony to . . .
create a degree of realism
add depth to their portrayal of life
create humor (often sly, even sardonic)
