I don't get what is ironic about this phrase from The Minister's Black Veil:
"How strange that a simple black veil such as any woman might wear on her bonnet, should become such a terrible thing on Mr. Hooper's face" ?

Is it because their all hiding behing black veils?

    its because it looks strange on a man and not strange on a women.

  • English -

    thanks
