THE GLASS CASTLE SUMMARY - STUDY GUIDE


OTHER ELEMENTS

IRONY

Another important element is irony - when something happens, or is seen, or is heard that we may know, but the characters do not, or that appears opposite of what is expected. Some examples of irony include:

1. It is ironic that the first thing Jeannette’s Mom begins to talk about is Picasso. She is homeless and finds food in dumpsters.

2. Jeannette’s mother disapproves of her hum chewing and calls it a low-class habit. They are low-class people.

3. It is ironic that Mom tells Jeannette after she’s burned, “You don’t have to worry........ .

........ 28. “But despite all the hell raising and destruction and chaos Dad created in their lives, Jeannette cannot imagine what her life will be like . . . without him. As awful as he can be, she has always known he loves her in a way no one else ever has.”
