Default Re: Dramatic Irony

thanks! it sounds similar to literary but i might not have chosen a good sample in my earlier post...

so, it seems like the difference between situational irony and dramatic irony is the writer's intent...? in dramatic irony the writer tells the truth to the audience (shows them a bomb under the table); but, in situational irony, the writer tells the truth but then the truth is reversed to be a lie (shows them a bomb but then reveals it's a dud)...?
