Situational Vs. Dramatic IronyIf you havent noticed alreadythis play is LOADED with ironiesSituational Irony: a literary device in which an incongruity appears between expectations of something to happen and what actually happens, something entirely different happens or the final outcome is opposite to what the audience is expecting.Ex) Cesario woos Olivia for himself by mistakeDramatic Irony: a literary device by which the audiences or readers understanding of events or individuals in a work surpasses that of its characters; the audience knows something the characters dontEx) The Duke describes Cesario as effeminateMonologue Vs. Soliloquy Two devices that are very similar and often confusedMonologue, in literature and drama, an extended speech by one person. The term has several closely related meanings. A dramatic monologue is any speech of some duration addressed by a character to a second person. An interior monologue is a type of monologue that exhibits the thoughts, feelings, and associations passing through a characters mind.

A soliloquy is a type of monologue in which a character directly addresses an audience or speaks his thoughts aloud while alone or while the other actors keep silent.
