LANGUAGE OF PARADOX CLEANTH BROOKS PDF

In literature, the paradox is a literary device consisting of the anomalous juxtaposition of incongruous ideas for the sake of striking exposition or unexpected insight. It functions as a method of literary composition — and analysis — which involves examining apparently contradictory statements and drawing conclusions either to reconcile them or to explain their presence. Cleanth Brooks, an active member of the New Critical movement, outlines the use of reading poems through paradox as a method of critical interpretation. Paradox in poetry means that tension at the surface of a verse can lead to apparent contradictions and hypocrisies. And I do not mean that the connotations are important as supplying some sort of frill or trimming, something external to the real matter in hand.
