Dramatic Irony.

Peck

Peck

(Drah-ma-tic I-ron-ee)

My name is Chick-a-Dee Chicken. And I have a story to tell you.

Dramatic Irony is a touchy subject. But someone needs to discuss it. And I shall be that brave... chicken. It is when you, the reader, knows something about the situation or actions surrounding the character that makes the words or actions of the characters take on a different meaning then what the characters can know.

An example of dramatic irony is in Edgar Allen Poe's "A Tell-Tale Heart". The narrator continuously claims he is sane, but his actions and rationalizations, or lack thereof, shows us that he is most definitely not sane.

Indeed. Understanding dramatic irony allows us to understand the very twisted thoughts of the narrator and it even gives us clues to the fact that the narrator is trying to tell us that he is not insane. Because even though his words tell us he is not insane, his actions say otherwise.

Whew. It is done! Now that I've done my duty, I'm moving to the big city. I heard there is great work for a Chick like me! They even have a store that caters exculsively to me!

I'm so excited I could fly!

I'M HERE!!!! Luxury here I come!
