In on a secret? That’s dramatic irony - Christopher Warner
what I did
- watch it without subtitle. The video does not have subtitle:(
- Summarize the main idea
What I learned
- The reason why comedy films & horror films are so popular is that they both use dramatic irony. Dramatic irony means that the audience always know something more than the character. The audience are in on a secret that the character has missed. This is a great story telling device that creates tremendous emotion.
- 3 types of irony: situational irony , verbal irony and dramatic irony.
