8 Summary Juxtaposition places to things, concepts, people, etc next to one another to invite a comparison. An Oxymoron is a statement that contradicts (or appears to contradict) itself for rhetorical or dramatic effect (often comedic as well). "hot ice" is an oxymoron (from A Midsummer Night's Dream). These words are placed directly next to each other. A Paradox is a statement that seems to contradict itself but reveals a kind of truth. "There's a method to his madness" (which is a paraphrased quote from the original in Hamlet) is a literary paradox. These words are separated by other words.
