For those who aren't going to cheat on essays, assignment or papers and are also irony blind, you might find Wayne C. Booth's book "The Rhetoric of Irony" and the books he references useful in understanding some aspects of irony. It is suprising that someone needs a summary of an essay that is at most 2 pages long!

Booth's book is also useful for the reader of novels who wants a broader understanding of the varieties, uses and techniques of irony.
