Irony in And Then There Were None
For many of you that are on this website, I am pretty sure that you have read this book. After reading it, i have realized how much irony which has been set in this book. At the beginning it begins with the poem. The last person to be killed is "hung". After looking back at the poem when Christie gave the character's description one character stood out to be the killer, Justice Wargrave. Many of you may wonder why I think this. Wargrave was known as the "hanging judge" but it was never himself in which he wanted to be charged with crime. He never had a real motive to hang every person he did. Also, Emily Brent was charged with the death of Beatrice Taylor, with irony in mind, she was "stung by a bee." Is this coincidence or not?
