Challenging the Literal

Challenging the Literal Response:

First off, I would like to say that it is easier and more pleasant for me to talk through ideas rather than writing them.

In regards to sarcastic weather:

“Love, well love is the weather being good everyday because rain and wind are just another kind of good weather”

Literal- the difference between Illustration and Fine Art.

Ironic: the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning.


Sarcastic: expressing or expressive of ridicule that wounds

The writer implies that ironic and sarcastic mean the same, but they are not universally exclusive.

Lie: meant to amuse?? , to mislead, this idea comes up in 1st person writing, how much can we really trust the narrator for the truth or a non-biased opinion, reaction, view of any given situation. Does our trust in them reflect more of ourselves than of them?
