creon declares that anarchists are behind the burial of Polyneices. What dramatic irony lies in the declaration?
a. the audience knows that it is the Sentry who buried him
b. the audience knows that it is a priest who buried him
c. the audience knows that Creoon secretly suspects Antigone but can't accuse her because she is haimon's fiancee
d. the audience knows that antigone has buried him for religious, not political, reasons
i don't get this irony stuff...i don't know the answer
Again -- you have to remember that this is a play, and who's speaking to whom at any one point makes a difference.
