Q. 35.0( 1 Vote )

Locate instances of irony in the story.

Answer :

The technique is intended to expose something verbally or through physical actions to reveal certain things which are contradictory to what had been known previously. The foremost ironical incident in “The Luncheon” occurs when the narrator contemplated that he would be able to manage the expenditure at Foyot with his available cash. However, he was taken aback by the strangely high process of the dishes. He is flabbergasted by the whole incident. Again, irony comes in the lady declaring previously that he hardly had anything for luncheon but then didn’t bother to order salmon, caviere and other such dishes at a go. Finally, we have verbal irony in the story at a point when the narrator remarks that he had been abstained from drinking by his doctors which is actually not the truth.
