Im tired of encountering more and more writing that uses irony as the main device to carry the narrative or the poem. it’s rarely poignant, almost never beautiful, and has for the most part lost all it’s effectiveness in an already irony-filled culture. It leads to needless sarcasm, tiresome double speak, irreconcilable emotional paradoxes, and confusing mistrust among readers and writers.
But it’s so easy to use. It’s a default setting to some degree. I’ve lost almost all use for irony in what I read or write. it isn’t authentic anymore.
