Synopsis:

First published in 1935, as the Alexander Lectures at the University of Toronto, Of Irony has been in demand ever since. Professor Sedgewick begins his discussion by recognizing that irony is a way of speaking with which we are all familiar, a figure of speech used in daily conversation. But there are other ironies: those of allegory, of understatement, of detachment, of fate, and especially the irony used in drama. He explores how the various meanings of irony have developed—through Socrates, with his "urbane pretence," through Bacon, through the romantic irony of Schlegel and Tieck, through Bishop Thirlwall, whose essay on the irony of Socrates was pivotal in the history of English dramatic criticism. Now in its third edition, Of Irony remains a seminal work on the central role irony has played in tragedy from the time of the Greeks to the present.

About the Author:

Garnett Sedgewick (1882 – 1949) was a graduate of Dalhousie and Harvard universities, and the first Head of the Department of English at the University of British Columbia, from 1920 to 1948. He was well-known for his radio talks on all aspects of the humanities, and he played a crucial role in the teaching of the arts across Canada. His dramatic teaching-performances of Shakespeare are now a matter of academic legend, but his scholarship and wit are still to be found in his central book on irony ( Of Irony: Especially in Drama, Ronsdale, 2003 ) which continues to be of value to those interested in all fields of literature.
