Compare and Contrast-Marinelle, Zirwa, & Saad
Transcript of Compare and Contrast-Marinelle, Zirwa, & Saad
A statement that contains opposing ideas, that at first might seem illogical and inaccurate, yet will have a deeper meaning hidden inside
"Just prayed to
a God that
I don't believe in"
" How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire, "
Look over the lyrics from the The Script's song "Breakeven" and write a line that includes a paradox.
Then, in your own words, summarize one paradox being discussed throughout Edmund Spenser's poem; Sonnet 30
Some examples of a 'Paradox' include:
Deep down, you're really shallow
Which came first; the chicken or the egg?
Breakeven VS Sonnet 30
The above quote is an example of a paradox. Although, at first glance, it is almost an absurd statement,it makes the reader wonder the true reason behind praying. If someone does not believe in God, then why must they feel the need to pray?
To have no faith yet to hope is a contradictory idea and so, therefore, this is a 'paradox'.
Why pray if you dont believe
This is an example of a paradox as it contains icy cold and hot desire which are two opposing ideas. Although, this statement seems illogical at first, it is at further analysis that the true meaning is discovered. The coldness above symbolizes rejection while hot desire symbolizes want. The above verse illustrates the idea of a one sided relationship//obsession as one wonders how his passion has only further brought on rejection. The concept of fire/passion turning into cold/rejection is one of contradiction and the fact that fire, although supposed to melt things, takes the shape of coldness only seems to prove the fact that this is a 'paradox'.
The mixing of fire and Ice
