Storyboard Text

  • Yay!
  • What about the fire on the mountain?
  • Of course!
  • Let's go hunting! We need  meat!
  • A ship swam by, but there was no fire to signal it because YOU let it go out! We could have been saved!
  • We went hunting! We got a pig!
  • We should be trying to get off the island.
  • "You got your small fire all right."  (p. 44 Lord of the Flies)
  • This is the first slide of my Situational Irony Slide. In this scene, Jack thinks that they should go hunting, and gathers his hunters, taking those that were supposed to be keeping the fire going.
  • I just can't kill it! But I'll be sure to get them next time.
  • This shows situational irony because, while the boys do kill a pig, they end up losing a chance to get off the island (and therefore survive) because they had left the fire unattended.
  • This scene show verbal irony because the boys have burned half of the mountain, and Piggy sarcastically comments that they "got *their* small fire all right".
  • Hi. My name is Anna. I would like to thank you for reading my comic on the different types of irony in Lord of the Flies. Stay tuned!
  • My example for Dramatic Irony has to do with the symbolism of the pig in Lord of the Flies. In the beginning, Jack is unable to kill the piglet that he, Ralph, and Simon see in the forest.
  • As we (our English class) learned prior to reading the book, Piggy dies. It is unexpected for him to die instead of the animal of the same namesake.
