The prompt states "Note the irony in Nadine Gordimer's Once Upon a Time. Argue to what affect and how successfully irony is used and what it accomplishes."

I know that the irony lies in the fact that Gordimer starts the fairy tale by stating that she hates fairy tales and that the boy dies in his parent's effort to protect him, but I'm sort of missing the mark as far as Gordimer's cultural relevance. I know it refers to the Apartheid but how/why?

Also I'm having trouble formulating a thesis statement
