Let’s work with some opposites…
Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 23 June 2018!
This week we are dipping our toes into the pool of OPPOSITES. Our challenge is all about “opposing forces” and the use of antithesis in our writing. You will need to use the two opposing words in your response – which can be poetry or prose.
Our words this week are:
– permit and forbid
– visitor and host
You may be asking yourself, How can I use antithetical statements in my writing?
Luckily, Kat from Literary Devices has some examples for you.
Common Antithesis Examples
Some famous antithetical statements have become part of our everyday speech and are frequently used in arguments and discussions. Below is the list of some antithetical statements:
You are easy on the eyes, but hard on the heart.
Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice.
Love is an ideal thing, marriage a real thing.
