    maybe if you read it and look carefully you might find it..not trying to sound bad but i think if you read that book and maybe we can help you see if the one you have chosen is ironic.

    Heres 3 The verbal irony is in the use of the word and the name Earnest in a way that shows it to be the opposite of what it actually means. The situational irony is in the roles the two friends play. The dramatic irony is shown in the deus ex machina ending and the true story of Miss Prism.
