Please someone explain these to me!!! I've put in the answers that i think are right but i don't understand these very well.
1. Identify the type of irony found i Act IV, scene 1, of romeo and juliet, when paris meets juliet at friar lawrence's cell and says, do not deny... that you love me, and Juliet replies I will confess to you that I love him
A. verbal irony
B. situational irony
C. dramatic irony
I think its either dramatic or verbal because she's speaking so it could be verbal but we also know that juliet loves romeo so its something that the reader knows...
2. Identify the type of figurative language in the sentences below (taken from act IV, scene 1 of Romeo and Juliet).
Paris: "Pour soul, thy face is much abus'd with tears."
Juliet: "The tears have got small victory by that;/ For it was bad enough before their spite."
3.Identify the type of figurative language in the sentence below (taken from act IV scene 1 of romeo and juliet
Friar Lawrence: "then is it likely thou wilt undertake / a thing like death to chide away this shame..."
I'm stuck between a simile and personification...Please help!!!
You are correct on 1 and 2.
For 3, makes sure you know what a simile is:
And, make sure you know what the word "chide" means:
So then on 1 its verbal or dramatic because I don't know which of those it was...And on number3 it would be personification then right?
