The Crucible Act 2 Terms to Know Allusion ALLUSION: A casual reference in literature to a person, place, event, or another passage of literature, often without explicit identification. Allusions can originate in mythology, biblical references, historical events, legends, geography, or earlier literary works. Authors often use allusion to establish a tone, create an implied association, contrast two objects or people,

make an unusual juxtaposition of references, or bring the reader into a world of experience outside the limitations of the story itself. Authors assume that the readers will recognize the original sources and relate their meaning to the new context. Allusions in Act 2 Allusion 1. What does the biblical allusion to Moses and the parting of the Red Sea suggest about how the crowd views Abigail? 2. (a) What does John Proctors allusion to Pontius Pilate imply about

characters in a play, essay, story, or novel, especially a conversation between two characters, or a literary work that takes the form of such a discussion. How does Arthur Miller use dialogue to move the events of the plot and develop characters? Irony Actuality vs. Expectation

Cicero referred to irony as "saying one thing and meaning another. Irony in Act 1 and 2: The entire town began listening to the little girls and allowed them to determine who was accused of witchcraft. How ironic that they listened to them during this time when little girls typically have no voice and no valuable opinions. Situational Irony Situational irony (also called cosmic irony)

is a trope in which accidental events occur that seem oddly appropriate, such as the poetic justice of a pickpocket getting his own pocket picked. However, both the victim and the audience are simultaneously aware of the situation in situational irony--which is not the case in dramatic irony. lit_terms_I.html Verbal Irony

Verbal irony (also called sarcasm) is a trope in which a speaker makes a statement in which its actual meaning differs sharply from the meaning that the words ostensibly express. Often this sort of irony is plainly sarcastic in the eyes of the reader, but the characters listening in the story may not realize the speaker's sarcasm as quickly as the readers do.

Dramatic Irony Dramatic irony (the most important type for literature) involves a situation in a narrative in which the reader knows something about present or future circumstances that the character does not know. In that situation, the character acts in a way we recognize to be grossly inappropriate to the actual circumstances, or the character expects the opposite of what the reader knows that fate holds in store, or the character anticipates a particular outcome that unfolds itself in an unintentional way. Probably the most famous example of dramatic irony is the

situation facing Oedipus in the play Oedipus Rex.
