IRONY IN AMINATA SOWFALLS THE BEGGARS STRIKE
Department of English and Linguistics
According to Catherin Keating Sowfall’s portrayal of the beggars allows the reader no possibility to view them as anything other than a group of sentient thinking individual with a complex social network, who enjoy relationship with friends and family and whom are subject to the same joys and disappointment which affect each of our lives. More importantly, they are presented as unique as any other living creature and therefore as deserving of consideration as moral beings.
Several areas of interest have been explored in Aminata Sowfall’s The Beggars’ Strikesuch as leadership, characterization, environmental issues. This essay however explores other areas not sufficiently explored-irony, the major types with the aim of adding knowledge to already existing knowledge.
This study focuses on the use of Irony, such as situational Irony, and verbal Irony for the realization of themes.
