High School Homework 1/8

Tropes for week 18
Antimetabole- is a literary and rhetorical device in which a phrase or sentence is repeated, but in reverse order. Writers or speakers use antimetabole for effect-calling attention to the words, or demonstrating that reality is not always what it seems by using the reversal of words. “Fair is foul and foul is fair.”
Chiasmus- Chiasmus is a rhetorical device in which two or more clauses are balanced against each other by the reversal of their structures in order to produce an artistic effect.
 “Never let a Fool Kiss You or a Kiss Fool You.”


“It is not the oath that makes us believe the man,
but the man the oath.”- Aeschylus


The Difference Between Chiasmus and Antimetabole

An antimetabole is the repetition of words in consecutive clauses, but in an inverted or transposed order. For example:

In examples of chiasmus, however, the words and phrases are not repeated.
