Juxtaposition: the arrangement of two or more ideas, characters, actions, settings, phrases, or words side-by-side or in similar narrative moments for comparison.

Consider the impact of juxtaposition in this Dickens classic A Tale of Two Cities.
​“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 the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way…
