Mental Enlightenment Scientific-Methodological Journal


This work is of a research nature. The author set herself the goal of analyzing the original text of the novel by Charles Dickens for the purpose of studying the author's techniques for the embodiment of irony and sarcasm in this work. The author expresses the assumption (hypothesis) that the mechanisms of transmission of irony in the novel are much more diverse than the dictionary interpretation of the trope "irony" suggests, and aims to show that this circumstance enhances the emotional impact on the reader of the book. The author substantiated the element of scientific novelty in her article by the fact that in literary works not enough attention is paid to the linguistic analysis of the text of this novel and the mechanisms of transmission of irony by Dickens have not been traced.
