Antithesis

"Antithesis is a figure of speech in which words or phrases that are parallel in order and syntax express opposite or contrasting meanings" (Hamilton 64).

Hamilton also gives a good example of antithesis: "'It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was season of Light, it was the season of Darkness..." (Hamilton 64). Another vocab term to look at for a mintute, and then forget so I can look it up again later.
