The Use of Irony in Barbara L. Greenberg's The Faithful Wife

- The Use of Irony in Barbara L. Greenberg's The Faithful Wife "The Faithful Wife" by Barbara L. Greenberg is a fascinating, satirical account of what the speaker would do if she were unfaithful to her husband. Upon the first reading of this poem, I thought the woman in this poem was saying that her husband was irreplaceable and because of that she would never be unfaithful. Also I thought that if she did betray him, she would choose someone totally different from him, which somehow wouldn't dishonor this great man....   [tags: Greenberg Faithful Wife Essays]

However, thanks to Timothy Davis, that statement can be, and in my case, is true. In John Kiser's book, The Commander of the Faithful, Kiser shows us how Davis’ choice to name Elkader after an Arab gave his settlement a deep connection to a completely different civilization.

Even more problematic than defining faith, personally, is the justification of the leap of faith inherent in the notion of faithfulness.
