Transcript of Antithesis

Antithesis What is antithesis? Antithesis Assessment - a use of words or phrases that contrast
with each other. Antithesis can convey some
sense of complexity in a person or idea
by admitting opposite or nearly
opposite truths. Examples
of Antithesis in "Letter
from a Birmingham Jail." - "Injustice anywhere is a threat
to justice everywhere" Examples of Antithesis
(cont.) "They are still all too few in quantity, but
they are big in quality." Examples of Antithesis
(Cont.) "Everybody doesn't like something, but
nobody doesn't like Sara Lee" What is its effect? It is useful for making relatively fine distinctions or for clarifying differences which might be otherwise overlooked by a careless thinker or casual reader. Antithesis is also often used to create a balanced sentence structure effect. In this example, Martin Luther King Jr. contrasts anywhere with everywhere and justice to injustice in order to create antithesis. He does this to make the point that no ones justice is safe so long as injustice is being practiced. Pathos is a focus in this example as Doctor King appeals to the 8 Alabama clergymen. He
is trying to stress that, no matter where the acts
of wrongdoing occur, whether it be in the
South, North, West or East, it is not
acceptable to simply live with
injustice. With this quote, King Jr. speaks about the white men of the south and how he needed more white men like these to stand up for the African-American's civil rights movement. An example of logos, the message here is that the white men of the most racist states in America need to stand up for what is right. "You can hate the cop,
but you've gotta love the car." Now it's your turn; create your own form of antithesis that could be used for an advertisement.
