Situational irony is when authors use the plot of their story to create an unexpected twist and catch the reader off guard. For example, Guy de Maupassant uses situational irony to produce a feeling of sympathy in his short story“The Necklace.” “The Ransom Of Red Chief” by O.

She borrows Madame Forestier’s necklace for a huge ball that night to pretend to be rich.

The guilt that Desdemona feels radiates off her body, causing distress to Othello as he wonders if she really does love Cassio instead of himself. There are minor trips of guilt in this play. For instance, when Emilia picks up Desdemona’s handkerchief. She only does this because her husband tells her to so it didn’t cause her pain or guilt.

Three characters best exemplify this observation – Juliet’s nurse, the Friar, and Romeo. From the beginning, the nurse secretly helps Romeo and Juliet’s relationship grow by connecting the two lovers by bringing a ladder which allows them to complete their vows of marriage (3.2 32-36).

This shows the respect she has for the Queen.

She describes, “Of proud, seamed faces with mercy and murder hinting”(4).

• He(Nick) is referring to Jordan Baker when he slips in this comment, deliberately making the reader an accessory to his way of thinking by the use of the pronoun ‘you’: “Dishonesty in a woman is a thing you never blame deeply” (p. 48).

This can be seen through the variety of techniques that Shakespeare uses in Othello to portray the toll the deteriorating relationship between Othello and Desdemona has on their self-worth as their true identities as being confident in their status as faithful and loving marital partners are lost through the manipulations of Iago. It is also highlighted through Iago’s duplicitous nature and the irony of his façade as ‘honest’ Iago. Lionel Shriver also uses many different techniques in WNTTAK to convey this concept such as the narrator Eva Khatchadourian’s insecure feelings about her role as a mother due to her own son’s rejections and the juxtaposition of it in contrast with the strong relationship that she develops with her daughter. It can also be seen through her inability to belong to the suburban house that husband picked out in accordance with his patriotic view of a perfect American
