VERBAL IRONY THE DISCREPANCY IS BETWEEN WHAT IS
SAID AND WHAT IS MEANT.
DRAMATIC IRONY THE CONTRAST IS BETWEEN WHAT A
CHARACTER SAYS AND WHAT THE READER KNOWS TO BE

APPEARANCE AND REALITY, BETWEEN EXPECTATION AND
FULFILLMENT, BETWEEN WHAT IS AND WHAT WOULD SEEM
APPROPRIATE.

love, which often results in an exposure to human
vulnerability.
