Oxymoron :

Figures of speech, as we have seen earlier, make the writing of prose or poetry pieces much more interesting. We have come across a few figures of speech earlier.


When two words of opposite meaning are used next to each other in a line, the figure of speech is known as oxymoron.

For example :

1. Richie Rich is a poor rich boy.
2. Akbar felt he was the wisest fool in the kingdom.
