Twain in the Notice used the satire technique known as verbal irony to start off this book. Verbal irony is when someone says something but means the exact opposite and this is what Twain does. He told his readers that there is no plot, or no big picture to the book when in reality the big picture is what makes the book and Twain controversial. Using verbal irony, Twain established a sense of comedy that sets the tone for the rest of the book. It almost implies that the use of comedy or satire will be seen throughout the rest of the book.
