William Faulkner's Dramatic Irony

106 Words1 Page
Dramatic irony is present in this section of the text when the dead parachutist appears from the sky and lands on the island. We as the readers knew that the parachutist was dead but the story’s point of view made it seem though that it was just sign from the world of grown ups. The kids didn’t know their was a war going on so they didn’t really grasp the idea of a parachutist flying out from their helicopter.Dramatic irony is the best type to describe the event because nothing out of the ordinary happened and neither was there any type of sarcasm in the event.
