The Unsinkable Ship That Sank The Titanic was unsinkable was a thought that ran through many peoples heads as they heard the news that it had been struck with an iceberg They believed it couldnt sink because the Titanic was so big and strong that nothing in the world could take it down Whenever people today think of the Titanic we think of how it sank and how many people lost their lives which is an example of dramatic irony in itself We know the devastating end of the Titanic yet most of the people in this story did not The RMS Titanic by Hanson W Baldwin is a story using irony to immensely interest the reader Dramatic irony occurred vaguely in this account However it all depends on how much knowledge you have of the disaster Already knowing the ship sinks is a dramatic irony that is shown by just reading the title If you have any further knowledge you may come upon more dramatic ironies For example it is said in the story that the band was playing ragtime during all the drama on the ship This is a dramatic irony because we know that the ship is going to sink and they should be taking care of themselves before the White Star liner goes down rather than standing there playing ragtime for the people walking by Another example of dramatic irony in RMS Titanic is the fact that life preservers are tied on some men smile at the precaution Most readers know that the life preservers are not a silly precaution but something that might save them from the horrible risks that they will face later on in the night One paragraph in the account reads But the passengers- most of them- did not know that the Titanic was sinking The shock of the collision had been so slight that some were not awakened by it the Titanic was so huge
