IRONY is a literary tool that causes the audience to question possible attended outcomes.
- Verbal Irony: when a speaker speaks something contradictory to what he intends to. It is an intentional product of the speaker and is contradictory to his/her emotions and actions.
- Dramatic Irony: when the audience has information that characters within the literary text do not. THIS IS THE MOST COMMON FORM OF IRONY!
- Situational Irony: when the audience's expectation is completely different than the outcome.
