Seeing Irony

Irony exudes a tone or attitude. It's said we live in an ironic age, one that appreciates an ironic stance. Writers and critics look for it in literature; it evokes a tone or quality:

tongue-in-cheek
an arched eyebrow
a knowing wink to readers
  a lack of earnestness or sincerity (no
exclamation points in ironic writing!!)
