Alanis Morissette - Ironic (by heyimjason)
Podetron: A little meditation on irony from Ms. Alanis Morissette. Takin’ it back to the 90s. What do you think—considering the definition of irony, ironic or not? I will upload the lyrics as well so you can do a true analysis.
Lindsey- No this does not seem ironic. It does not show the full effect of what the meaning irony is. The true definition contradicts expectations of the charachers. It has a difference between appearance and reality. Something bad is always bound to be happening and seen.
This is a painting done by John William Waterhouse in 1874. It is a portrayal of the Greek gods, sleep, Hypnos, and death, Thanatos. The passage from the Epic of Gilgamesh that we read today reminded me of it. On page 507, Utnapishtim says, “The sleeping and the dead, how alike they are, they are like a painted death.” Waterhouse lost two younger brothers to tuberculosis shortly before he painted this sad piece. Something to think about!
I officially LOVE this class!!!!!!! FUNNNNNNNN
