II. Irony is when we say one thing but mean another, usually the opposite of what we say. When someone makes a mistake and you say, “Oh ! that was clever !” that is irony. You’re saying ‘clever’ to mean ‘not clever’.
Expressions we often use in an ironic fashion are :

  • Oh, wasn’t that clever ! /Oh that was clever !
  • You have been a great help, I must say !
  • You’ve got yourself into a lovely mess, haven’t you ?
  • Oh, very funny ! /How funny !

We use a slightly different tone of voice when we use these words ironically.

Read the play carefully and find the words and expressions Gerrard uses in an ironic way. Then say what these expressions really mean. Two examples have been given below. Write down three more such expressions along with what they really mean.

What the author saysWhat he means
Why, this is a surprise, Mr – er –He pretends that the intruder is a social visitor whom he is welcoming. In this way he hides his fear.
At last a sympathetic audience !He pretends that the intruder wants to listen to him, whereas actually the intruder wants to find out information for his own use.

Answers

What the author saysWhat he means
1. At last a sympathetic audience !Gerrard means that his company is not a sympathetic audience. It is because the Intruder has got a gun in his hand.
2. You have been so modestGerrard means that the Intruder has been immodest in not having told anything about himself.
3. With you figuring so largely in it, that is understandableGerrard means that it is not understandable how anything about him is ‘surprising’.

DICTIONARY USE
A word can mean different things in different contexts. Look at these three sentences :

  1. The students are taught to respect different cultures.
  2. The school is organising a cultural show.
  3. His voice is cultured.

In the first sentence, ‘culture’ (noun) means way of life ; in the second, ‘cultural’ (adjective) means connected with art, literature and music ; and in the third, ‘cultured’ (verb) means sophisticated, well-mannered. Usually a dictionary helps you identify the right meaning by giving you signposts.

Look up the dictionary entries for the words sympathy, familiarity, comfort, care, and surprise. Use the information given in the dictionary and complete the table.

How Gerrard Outwits the Intruder

Gerrard resides in his cottage all alone. It is situated in a lonely place. He is a young man of cool and confident nature. He is a playwright. He doesn’t meet many people. By nature he is a witty and humorous person. He takes things humorously. But he handles them with a cool mind. He is not easy to be outwitted. He doesn’t get nervous easily. He remains confident till the end. That’s why, he outsmarts the Intruder with success.

The Intruder is a smart and handsome young man. He wears flashy clothes. In his dress he looks like a detective. He is very clever and confident. He has the ability to pretend what he is not. He is greatly intelligent to create fear in Gerrard by his gun. He understands things. He tries to put them to his advantage. But he is helpless before Gerrard. Gerrard outsmarts him in his false story of being himself a murderer. Gerrard at last puts him in a cupboard. Then he gets him arrested.

II. Gerrard is a cultured playwright. He lives in a small cottage. He does meet many people. He is to go out soon. But before he does so, an Intruder enters his cottage. He has a gun in his hand. He bumps accidentally against the table. Gerrard welcomes him with confidence.

The Intruder opens up. He asks Gerrard many questions. These are about his life, his cottage, how many people come there etc. Gerrard is cool and confident. He under-stands the Intruder’s design. He answers his questions with humour, wit and irony. He says that the Intruder didn’t ‘require a great brain’ to break into his little cottage. He . even asked him about his ‘speciality’.

At last Gerrard understood. The Intruder wanted to murder him and live as Gerrard because he looked like him. Gerrard at once understood everything. He told the Intruder that he was also a murderer. Therefore, the police were after him.

Gerrard explained that unfortunately one of his men had been caught. He was expecting trouble that night because of that. He was to be off that night. He then made [ the Intruder understand that it was good for him if he went with him. He also told him that if it was a frame, he could shoot him in the car.
The Intruder agreed. But when he was about to cross the door, Gerrard pushed him into the nearby cupboard in a split second. He then slammed it. Thereafter, he telephoned the police for his arrest.

BOOK EXCERPT:

“A stunning historical saga of hardship and desire in wartime. . . . Readers won’t be able to turn the pages fast enough [in this] . . . unique take on the traditional World War 2 tale.” —Library Journal From bestselling and eight-time Christy Award–winning author Lynn Austin comes a remarkable novel of sisterhood, self-discovery, and romance set against the backdrop of WW2. 1950. In the wake of the war, Audrey Clarkson leaves her manor house in England for a fresh start in America with her young son. As a widowed war bride, Audrey needs the support of her American in-laws, whom she has never met. But she arrives to find that her longtime friend Eve Dawson has been impersonating her for the past four years. Unraveling this deception will force Audrey and Eve’s secrets—and the complicated history of their friendship—to the surface. 1940. Eve and Audrey have been as different as two friends can be since the day they met at Wellingford Hall, where Eve’s mother served as a lady’s maid for Audrey’s mother. As young women, those differences become a polarizing force . . . until a greater threat—Nazi invasion—reunites them. With London facing relentless bombardment, Audrey and Eve join the fight as ambulance drivers, battling constant danger together. An American stationed in England brings dreams of a brighter future for Audrey, and the collapse of the class system gives Eve hope for a future with Audrey’s brother. But in the wake of devastating loss, both women must make life-altering decisions that will set in motion a web of lies and push them both to the breaking point long after the last bomb has fallen. This sweeping story transports readers to one of the most challenging eras of history to explore the deep, abiding power of faith and friendship to overcome more than we ever thought possible.
