Someone who wasn't afraid to break with the norm and who didn't care if he was a 'nerd'. Someone with a subtle wit that most people would need to think to laugh at, but who could appreciate and indulge in obvious humor and silliness. Someone whose musical tastes were all across the board, and who didn't really care whether his tastes were considered overly popular or even overly eclectic. Someone wh

    Satire

    Satire is a therapeutic form of criticism used to point out a specific failing of society. With the intelligent addition of wit, the satirist can manipulate society to look at weak aspects in a humorous way, making the effect greater. Satire is important because ultimately it will force society to come to a realization that something should be changed or improved. To cause change, the impact of a statement is exaggerated using satire. In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, the major theme is racism.

Along with irony there is also dramatic irony which is very different to irony. Dramatic irony consists of a situation whereby the reader participates with the author in a knowledge of events which have not been disclosed to the character. Austen augments this form of irony by concealing facts from the reader, thereby building up a false anticipation which is abruptly thwarted for the sake of dramatic interest.
