comment Is 'irony' the correct word to describe a character's delusionary observations?
The rest of the passage describes the woman as being severely depressed, so much so that she commits suicide. Her depression is causing her to believe that a ditch cleaner has a better life than her as a house-wife whose household is well-off enough to have a maid.

@RoaringFish: the context is that the woman is on her way to commit suicide. She is severely depressed. I take it that her depression is making her think that a ditch cleaner is better than a house-wife that lives in house with a maid.
