Students will welcome this clear, concise guide, which:
*traces the use of the concept through history, from Greek times to the Romantic period and on to the postmodern era
*looks closely at the work of Socrates and the more contemporary theorists Jacques Derrida and Gilles Deleuze
*explores the philosophical, literary and political dimensions of irony
*applies theories of irony to literary texts
Making even the most difficult debates accessible and clear, this is the ideal student introduction to the many theories of irony.
