9/14 English 1 Agenda

Sneeze
What kind of irony do you see, and why?  Answer in complete sentences.

  1. In Macbeth by William Shakespeare, Macbeth appears to be loyal to Duncan, but he is actually plotting his murder. Duncan doesn’t know Macbeth’s plans, but the audience knows what is going to happen.
  2. The Story of an Hour by Kate Chopin tells the tale of a wife who learned her husband was dead. She felt a sense of freedom, thinking about her new life out from under his thumb. Suddenly, the husband returns (he never was dead) and she dies of shock.
  3. A snobbish woman – who perceives moonstone to be a poor man’s gemstone – is given a pair of moonstone earrings by her fiancé. When she opens the box, she says, “Thank you, honey. I just love moonstones. They’re so – simple.”

The rest of the day was spent on a Pop Quiz for “The Most Dangerous Game,” reviewing the irony worksheet as a class, and beginning to find examples of each type of irony in the short story.

Homework: Make a table outlining the three types of irony.  Find three examples of each type of irony in the short story, “The Most Dangerous Game.”
