The author, O·Henry, used verbal irony in his work The Gift Of The Magi.
For example, it’s said that “And here I have lamely related to you the uneventful chronicle of two foolish children in a flat who most sacrificed unwisely for each other the greatest treasures of their house.”
The author used derogatory terms, but their meanings belong to commendatory terms. The words actually praised the pure love between Jim and Della.
Hello！ I’m Allen. My Chinese name is Yang Zimu. I’m from Weifang not Qingdao, but I like Qingdao very much because it is bigger and more prosperous than Weifang. I have many hobbies such as singing, playing computer games, movies, and sports. I like interesting things because they make me strong and clever. I like music and sports very much, so I often squeeze out some time to listen to music and play sports with friends. When I went to Europe, I bought a headset to listen to songs at night. I think staying at home is a very boring thing and I like travelling. I have been to many Chinese cities, such as Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Henan, and I have been to Europe too. It’s very beautiful.
I have a good temper, I am not shy, and I enjoy interacting with people. When I go to a new school, the first important thing for me is to meet new friends, because I think making new friends in a school can bring me a lot of benefits, such as communication learning, exchanging hobbies and communication difficulties.
My parents also live in Weifang. In fact, Weifang is also a very good city, where there are lots of places to visit, and also the kite capital of the world. My parents are very capable and have great hopes for me, so I will live up to their expectations.

Hi, I am Mary Dong and I am 15 and I am Taurus. Actually, I was born in Ha’erbin, Heilongjiang, but I came to Qingdao when I was only one month old and I have lived in Qingdao for 15 years, so I just say that I am from Qingdao. My father is from Heilongjiang, the northeast part of China, but my mom is from Guizhou, the southwest part of China, their hometowns are far from the other one but they met and fell in love with each other, I think that’s magical. I am the only child in my family, so I treat my cat Lois as my younger brother (although it may be elder than me if he is a human), he is cute and gentle that he never scratches me, I used to have a German Shepherd named Lud(Ludwig), he was already three years old when I was born. Though he looked unfriendly, he had protected me for almost ten years, unfortunately, I lost him when I was 12, I have never kept a dog since then. My favorite food is broccoli and I hate coriander a lot, I think coriander have wired smell and I don’t like it. I like to play computer games but at the same time, it can make me tired sometimes and I LOVE Overwatch a lot. I enjoy the life in Pegasus now, and I am thankful to it. That’s all, thank you!
My name is Lucy, and my Chinese name is Liu Renyi. I’m 14, study in Pegasus California School. I live with my mom and grandparents. I like plants and flowers, and I think it is really difficult to plant flowers very well.
I like dancing, music, and ice-skating. I like dancing because I think it is a good way to relax and I can make us more graceful. I am studying ballet now. I had a group of classmates in my old school who also like dancing. So, I built a dance club and We usually practice dancing together after school. I had a good time there.
I like music. At the very beginning, I played keyboard for 6 years. Then I turned to electronic organ, and I have been studying it for 3 years. I really like this instrument because it can imitate many kinds of instrument. It is powerful. Also, it is more difficult and have more challenge than the keyboard, but I like it.
I like animals because I think they are cute and smart. I also like traveling, I like to travel with my parents.
I also like Math, cause I think math is full of logic. When I solve a math problem, I will be very excited.
I want to study math, science,or medicien when I am in the college, so I can do the job I really like. And I want to be taller, for I am always the shortes in my class.
That’s all. Thank you!
