Irony is a method of argumentation aimed at influencing the recipient, as an active element in the conduct of the argumentative process. It assumes an original function in discourse, in its argumentative role, through which the cynic seeks to convince the recipient of the opposite of what he says by saying and the opposite of what he thinks. The satirist deals with the truth as an indirect argument. The recipient has an active role in the argumentative process, as he is influenced by arguments that agree with his views in accepting or rejecting them, and this is what we have employed in the novels of the writer Youssef Zidan.
