An example of dramatic irony in Act V, Scene 3 of “Romeo and Juliet” is:
a. Romeo thought Juliet was dead when he poisoned himself, but the audience knew she was alive.
After knowing that Juliet had died Romeo wanted to enter the tomb in which Juliet laid dead desperately. When he discovers Paris he asks him to get away from the tomb, but he didn't leave the tomb. Paris and Romeo indulge themselves in a fight in which Paris is killed by Romeo. He takes Paris into Juliet's tomb and then drinks the poison. When Juliet awakes, she finds Romeo dead after which she too stabs herself with a dagger. This event was an example of Dramatic irony as the audience knew very well that Juliet is feigning her death but Romeo finds it to be the reality.
