Which sentence in this excerpt from "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman shows the use of verbal irony? I don't like our room a bit. I wanted one downstairs that opened on the piazza and had roses all over the window, and such pretty old-fashioned chintz hangings! but John would not hear of it. He said there was only one window and not room for two beds, and no near room for him if he took another. He is very careful and loving, and hardly lets me stir without special direction.

ok so, according to the dictionary, verbal irony is irony in which a person says or writes one thing and means another, or uses words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of the literal meaning.

  • anonymous

You already know that irony is when events are words appear to be the opposite of reality. Verbal Irony is when words express something contrary to truth or someone says the opposite of what they really feel or mean. Verbal irony is often sarcastic.

Verbal irony is used in a variety of circumstances. It may be used in general conversation or also in media. Television sitcoms and movies often use verbal irony, as do many political pundits. Verbal irony is often stated in the form of a metaphor or simile. Comparisons and contrasts are used to create a visualization for the listener or reader.

I'll give you some examples: Soft like a brick Hard as putty Clear like dirt As pleasant as surgery Saying “Oh, fantastic!” when the situation is actually very poor As calm as a dog in heat One got in a car accident and said “Lucky me!”
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok, well you know what metaphors and similes are, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so the last one?
anonymous

hm... I've never read the book so I'm not entirely sure because none of these sound like verbal irony. However, if I did read the book I would get to know the characters and know what type of situation they're in. Did you read the book or is this just some random question on a test?
anonymous
  • anonymous
or both?

  • anonymous
random test

I think I need a little help here @radar
anonymous
  • anonymous
So, you've never read the book, correct?
anonymous
  • anonymous

anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh, I'm sorry did I get it wrong for you or did you pick the last one?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I wish I could've been of better help
