The irony in the book "" can be illustrated with the following examples of the names of buildings and places throughout the novel, as well as the Party slogans. Winston Smith lives in an apartment complex by the name of Victory Mansions. However this is clearly ironic as the apartment does not seem victorious at all.

Analysis: Books 15–16 Book 15 marks the beginning of the end for Hector and the Trojans, who have reached the height of their power and now face a downhill slope. From this vantage point, the end is in sight, and, correspondingly, Zeus now outlines the rest of The Iliad and beyond, predicting even the eventual fall of Troy, which occurs after.   On the other hand, there’s restorative irony—and Christ is the epitome of that. It looks like he’s being cursed but he’s being blessed. It looks like he’s being defeated, but he’s winning a victory. It looks like at the cross he is weak, but indeed he is strong.

R. W. Johnson (born ) is a British journalist, political scientist, and historian who lives in South Africa. Born in England, he was educated at Natal University and Oxford University, as a Rhodes was a fellow in politics at Magdalen College, Oxford, for twenty-six years; he remains an emeritus fellow. His book Look Back in Laughter: Oxford's Postwar Golden . In how is Victory Mansions, the name of Winston's apartment building, an example of verbal irony?. Verbal irony occurs when what is said or written conveys a meaning that is the opposite of the reality. Nothing about Winston's apartment building reflects an atmosphere of victory or the plush life of a mansion.
