irony
used in Picture of Dorian Gray - 13 chapter version

only 1 use
  • There had been mad wilful rejections, monstrous forms of self-torture and selfdenial, whose origin was fear, and whose result was a degradation infinitely more terrible than that fancied degradation from which, in their ignorance, they had sought to escape, Nature in her wonderful irony driving the anchorite out to herd with the wild animals of the desert and giving to the hermit the beasts of the field as his companions.
