2. verbal irony

Verbal irony is when a person says something but means the opposite. In this scene Juliet says "I love him" but she is not referring to Paris. She"s answering Paris" question about confessing her love for Paris to Friar Laurence. However, she actually is saying that she loves Friar Laurence to get out of lying about her love for Paris. It"s not a romantic love of course since she"s married to Romeo, whom she also loves.

Shakespeare uses comedy in many of his plays. The nurse and Mercutio both offer some comedic relief in this Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet.

4. C. Personification
