Irony:Irony can be classified as three things: verbal, dramatic, and situational.Verbal irony is when words are used opposite to it's literal meaning. For example in Act 1 Scene 3 when Sir Andrew was dancing, Sir Toby tells Sir Andrew that he is good at dancing but he is actually making fun of him.Second is situational irony. Situational irony is the outcome that is said is different from what was intended. One example of this is when Viola, Orsino, and Olivia are in a love triangle. But Olivia loves Cesario, which is actually Viola, and Viola loves Orsino but Orsino loves Olivia and Orsino doesn't know that Viola is dressed as a man named Cesario.Another example of irony is dramatic irony. Dramatic irony is when the audience knows what's going on but not the characters. For example in the play when Cesario and Orsino are talking, Orsino tells Cesario that " he " looks like a woman, which he actually is but only the audience knows this and not Orsino.
