AMSND-YV7XUO

Which of the following lines from the play contains dramatic irony?

A

“Methinks, mistress, you should have little reason for that: and yet, to say the truth, reason and love keep little company together now-a-days;” (3.1.131)

B

“This falls out better than I could devise. / But hast thou yet latch'd the Athenian's eyes / With the love-juice, as I did bid thee do?” (3.2.35)

C

“I pray thee, gentle mortal, sing again: / Mine ear is much enamour'd of thy note; / So is mine eye enthralled to thy shape; / And thy fair virtue's force perforce doth move me / On the first view to say, to swear, I love thee.” (3.1.126)

D

“Now I but chide; but I should use thee worse, / For thou, I fear, hast given me cause to curse, / If thou hast slain Lysander in his sleep, / Being o'er shoes in blood, plunge in the deep, / And kill me too.” (3.2.46)

E

“What hast thou done? thou hast mistaken quite / And laid the love-juice on some true-love's sight: / Of thy misprision must perforce ensue / Some true love turn'd and not a false turn'd true.” (3.2.88)
