Irony

RANDJ-Y43UCE

After Tybalt's death, Juliet says these lines to her mother:

Indeed I shall never be satisfied
With Romeo till I behold him—dead—
Is my poor heart so for a kinsman vexed

What type of irony is used in this statement, and how is it ironic?

A

Situational irony; we do not expect Juliet to say she wishes Romeo were dead

B

Dramatic irony; we know that Juliet loves Romeo and her mother doesn't

C

Verbal irony; Juliet means something different from the way it sounds

D

Dramatic and verbal only

E

All three types
