Irony essay examples

The first good irony comes in the first two lines. When  Claudius says that it is "sweet and commendable" to give this duty, he's praising  Hamlet for something that will eventually kill him.

My favorite, though, is when Claudius says to "think of us as a father." Would a father kill your real father? Not likely.

Shakespeare's "Hamlet" is full of talk about death, dead bodies, murder, suicide, disease, graves, and so forth. And there is no traditional Christian comfort or promise of eventual justice or happiness for the good people. But the message is ultimately one of hope. You can be a hero.

Am not a real expert with Shakespear, but in " Twelfth Night ," you have a good example of how he turn things around in an instant with "If music be the food of love, play on. Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting, the appetite may sicken, and so die." Just for fun, you should read this at the second link below. Read through the first scene.

Whosever room this is should be ashamed!
His underwear is hanging on the lamp.
His raincoat is there in the overstuffed chair,
And the chair is becoming quite mucky and damp.
His workbook is wedged in the window,
His sweater’s been thrown on the floor.
His scarf and one ski are beneath the TV,
And his pants have been carelessly hung on the door.
His books are all jammed in the closet,
His vest has been left in the hall.
A lizard named Ed is asleep in his bed,
And his smelly old sock has been stuck to the wall.
Whosever room this is should be ashamed!
Donald or Robert or Willie or–
Huh? You say it’s mine? Oh, dear,
I knew it looked familiar!
