Transcript of OXYMORON

Literary Example #1
“Why, then, O brawling love! O loving hate!
O anything, of nothing first create!
O heavy lightness! Serious vanity!
Misshapen 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 feel I, that feel no love in this.
Dost thou not laugh?”
Literary Example #2
"I can resist anything but temptation."
Literary Example #3
"And faith unfaithful kept him falsely true"
