Puck, a fairy, turned Bottom’s head into an ass’s head because Oberon, the fairy king, wanted his wife, Titania, to fall in love with something ugly. In my opinion, this is the best example of dramatic irony because it is exciting. This is also my favorite example. Wilkins 2 Another example of dramatic irony is when both, Lysander and Demetrius, fell in love with Helena. At first, Helena has been in love with Demetrius, but he was in love with Hermia.
Even though Queen Mab may be extremely small, her negative dreams cause a tremendous impact on others. The smallest things can have a positive or negative impact on an individual. Romeo and Juliet’s love seemed like a little harmless thing, but the reality was that their “love” led them to their eternal doom. Shakespeare applies the use of diction in the climax to further advance the motif of dreams. When Romeo first sees Juliet lying in the tomb he describes her as “Is crimson in thy lips and in thy
Throughout the play, dramatic irony is used to build tension and humor in the play. During the play, A Midsummer’s Night Dream, there were also other examples of dramatic irony besides Bottom. Lysander and Hermia are in love, but when Lysander 's new love separates them, everything changed. Also, a fairy queen, Titania, falls in love with Bottom, a worker who looks different. Dramatic Irony is throughout the play to make A Midsummer’s Night Dream interesting and exciting.
Scrooge, on edge, went to his bed, but never fell asleep. The atmosphere in his room was very tense. Later that night, a bright light shined from his window. A candle personifying Christmas past floated up and landed by Scrooge’s bed. The ghost grabbed Scrooge’s hand, flew him out the window, and began showing Scrooge visions of his past Christmas days.
When Puck mistakes Lysander for Demetrius, he wakes up to Helena and falls in love. To try and fix the situation, Oberon puts the juice on Demetrius’s eyes and soon after wakes up to Helena. Puck is filled with joy as the entertainment of the four young lovers comes together: “Shall we their fond pageant see? /Lord what these mortals be!” (III.ii.114-115). It has been noted that Puck can be seen not only as a spectator of the play’s
Helena thinks Demetrius is messing with her, and trying to make fun of her love towards him. This is an example of Dramatic Irony because the reader or audience knows that Demetrius loves Helena due to the love potion that is from Puck. Soon after this conversation there is another example of Irony and at this point Helena is being fought over between Lysander and Demetrius because of Puck's potion. Puck turns Bottom's head into that of a donkey because as a prank because he enjoys playing tricks on mortals and fairies. The transformation is funny because Bottom's name is synonymous with "ass" and also because Bottom's personality is stubborn and pushy.
Do you ever remember being scared of monsters under the bed? If so, then you will relate to the young child in “A Barred Owl.” An owl hooting in the night scares a girl, but thankfully her parents are there to comfort her. In “A Barred Owl,” author Richard Wilbur uses imagery, tone, and personification to show how powerful words can subdue any emotion. Imagery plays an important role in relaying the message of the poem. The poem opens with describing the “warping night air.” While in “her darkened room,” the girl hears the owl.
The words “entertainment” and “musical”;which are generally seen to be optimistic terms. The note that Vonnegut decides to compare the current situation of the war and the British officers with a Cinderella story brings a humour to the story; exposing a beautiful story out to a dark, miserable reality. The author also uses strong descriptions; he includes that “candles and the soaps were made from the fat of rendered Jews and Gypsies…” (Vonnegut 98). He finishes the following description with the phrase “so it goes.” It is believed that this is a fairly simple phrase to close off such a strong point and embellish it with how it relates to a Cinderella story. A real life example that is envisioned when I think about humour in a tragic circumstance is when a person begins to laugh before they

Stanley who represents realism in this novel and play pops Blanche’s illusion bubble through seeing the realism in scene ten he says: “not once did you pull any wool over this boy’s eyes!” Not only Stanley had broken her world of illusion, but also Mitch who is influenced by Stanley and destroys the protection of darkness by exposing her to the bright light. Stanley bringing up the past contributes to how Blanches ends up, alone and insane expressing the theme that what happened in the past determines the present, and illusion and fantasy directly correlate. Though reality triumphs over fantasy in A Streetcar Named Desire, when the truth comes colliding down on Blanche, she has no choice but to go insane ultimately avoiding the acceptance of
