Oxymoron: It is the yoking of two terms which are appar- ently self-contradictory. eg Here's much to do with hate, but more with love. Why then, O brawling love! O loving hate! O anything of nothing first create! O heavy lightness, serious vanity! Mishappen chaos of well seeming forms! Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health! Still-waking sleep, that is not what it is! This love I feel, that feel no love in this. -- Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet 36. Parable: (Greek para ballo meaning I throw beyond) It is an allegorical story giving a lofty idea or moral. The New Testament gives a good number of popular stories containing high moral lessons. The parable of the sower is a fine example of it. In Sanskrit literature, such parables are abundant in the Upaniṣads, the Mahābhārata and specially tales and fables of the Pañcatantra. 37. Paradox: It is a poetic statement or proposition which seems self-contradictory or absurd, but in reality expresses a possi- ble truth. eg Art is a form of lying in order to tell the truth. He is guilty of being innocent. -- Pablo Picasso 38. Paralipsis: It is a rhetorical expression that gives the suggestion by deliberately concise treatment of a topic, that much of significance is being omitted. eg I cannot delay to tell you how political quarrels might be otherwise settled. But grant that they cannot. Grant that no law of reason can be understood by nations; no law of justice submitted to by them. -- Ruskin 🔍+ 🔍° 🔍- ⟲ ⟳ Edit summary (optional) Status Needs more work Proofed once Proofed twice Not relevant Only registered users can save changes.
