The first act that he does is to rejuvenate the spirit of the inmates with his hilarious attitude. He asserts “…what I came to this establishment for, to bring you birds fun an’ entertainement”(11).

Both authors, O. Henry and Guy de Maupassant, both acquire a tremendous case of situational irony in their stories. O. Henry uses situational irony to produce the effect of humor in “The Ransom Red Chief.” For instance, the boy that is being kidnapped, Johnny, is actually enjoying it. This is ironic because Johnny should be horrified, however he enjoys staying away from home. Instead of trembling with fear Johnny is bouncing with excitement and joy. After the boy is told he was to stay a while, he said, “‘All right!...

McLuhan could not help himself. The other two scholars just rolled their eyes. As the conversation progresses the spotlight finally secures itself on Marshall. He is very famous for coining the phrase, “the medium is the message,” so it is no surprise that his most valuable aspect of creation is medium. “The medium shapes and controls the scale and form of human association and action,” Marshal explains; moreover, the medium becomes more important than concept.

As a professional, he insinuates that his approach is far more valid than that of the others, and his knowledge of medicine serves as his basis when he condescendingly proclaims that Heraclitus’ observation that harmony can still be possible to achieve despite its components’ contrasting elements is “quite absurd” (Plato, 187a). Although arrogant, Eryximachus adds an appealing framework to his argument because he has challenged a distinguished figure and revealed insight into his own character. Eryximachus prides himself in being a man of logic and allows this pride to guide his counsel amongst the other men. His pragmatic nature is illuminated by his warnings against the ambiguous and floral poetry of the goddess Polymnia. Ambiguity, he believes, requires precaution because it can ultimately lead to passionate overtones, which is categorized by the bad love.
He demonstrated a boy who is obsessed with fixing machines perfectly. For example, when he finally launches the automaton, his face showed a delightful and yearning smile, but after a while, he sees the automaton writing characters that seems meaningless, he became desperate. He jumps into the sofa, and murmured that he failed, and he cannot figure out the message his father gave him. However, his friend Isabelle finds out that the automaton did not stop its work, and continues to draw a picture. Hugo, with his eyes moistened and a twitching voice, said, “It’s not writing.”

Ken Kesey’s figurative language in his novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, illustrates that a broken individual can be made whole again.
