Isn't That Ironic?
In general, a discrepancy between appearances and reality is irony. Irony is
encountered thoughout our daily activies and comes in many forms; verbal, situational,
and cosmic. Verbal irony is the most familiar kind, this occurs when we understand that
the speaker's meaning is far from the usual meaning. For example, Sally rushes all
morning to get to the parking lot early, only to find her space taken, she then exclaims,
This is exacly why I rushed, just so I can hunt for a empty space. We understand that
she is not happy, and that her meaning is not literal. A form of verbal irony is sarcasm,
this is when the statement made is ironic, but it is bitter, coarse, and vulgar. An example
of this is, a Beth says to Sally (who is covered in mud), Oh Sally, you look so nice
today! The comment from Beth is made out of spite, simply to be rude and unkind.
Sally understands that Beth's real meaning is not what was said. The second form of
irony is situational, this form is often confused with cosmic, the difference between the
two is minimal. Situational irony is contradiction between what is expected to happen and
happens. In cosmic irony the contradiction takes place, but a supernatural force is said to
smoking campain, smokes. It would not be ironic for Kim to smoke, however the
circumstances make the situation ironic. However; Anne, the head of MADD, on her

way to a meeting with the organization, is struck by a drunk driver and dies, not knowing
that the drunk driver,who survives without a scratch, was her son. This is an example of
both situational and cosmic irony. The situation is ironic but, a supernatural force seems
to have created the situation. An example of the third form of irony, cosmic, is found in
the story The Necklace, in which a wife loses a diamond necklace that was lended to
her, she and her husband work ten years to pay back the money they lended to buy a new
necklace, only to discover the original necklace was fake. In this story it is evident that a
supernatual being got invovled to punish the wife for her greed. Ironies are easy to find
in our daily activties; whether in statement, situation, or unexpected event.

The Caucasian Chalk CircleThe Caucasian Chalk Circle The Caucasian Chalk Circle by Brecht uses epic theatre to bring forth an idea or meaning for the audience to consider while entertaining the audience.
