QUESTION 12

  1. Which best describes how the author used irony to create meaning in "The Convict and the Bishop"?

    After experiencing injustice in the prison, Valjean continues to experience injustice in society. This illustrates that injustice is widespread. This is ironic because it references the theme.

    The bishop refuses to listen to anyone else and allows Valjean to stay in his home. This is ironic because, while everyone else knows what to expect, the bishop remains ignorant. The bishop's ignorance enables Valjean to steal from him and sets up the conflict.
