Is this a good example of dramatic irony? Watch
I'm using the line 'thou shalt not escape calumny'.
So for anyone who doesn't know the context behind it, Hamlet is basically using Ophelia to vent his feelings about women and how they corrupt men. He's saying that no matter how pure you are, you won't escape lies and corruption.
That being said, I've made the point that this is dramatic irony, this is because Hamlet's saying to Ophelia that no matter how pure you are, you won't escape lies, whilst right at that point in time, Hamlet's putting on an antic-disposition and a false appearance that he's never had feelings for Ophelia. However, he did before he got angry at Gertrude and Claudius and started putting on his antic-disposition.
I've gone into a little more detail in my essay, but that's basically it, I feel like this is too weak? Have I even used dramatic irony correctly?
Any feedback will be great and extremely helpful!
