Juxtaposition in literature is a device used to provide contrasts and create a conjunction of impressions in the reader. The device is particularly effective in dramatic interludes, but is common in many forms of literature as an extension of story lines and character roles.
Examples of Juxtaposition in Literature:
|George Orwell 1984: The spreading chestnut tree song.|
HG Wells War of the Worlds: The Martians and the bacteria concept.
The Owl and the Pussycat and the Pea Green Boat
