Juxtaposition?

Would this be regarded as juxtaposition? And if it isn't, does anybody know the name for the device? (I do believe it has one, but for me it's long forgotten.)

Jenny left the flat and went to Regent's Park - in a lovely summer dress, a foul temper, and a taxi.

Not Juxtapostion

Definitely not juxtaposition; it sounds a lot like a zeugma: “a figure of speech in which a word applies to two others in different senses". The word "went" applies to Jenny's clothing, mood, and mode of transportation.

Help please :)

Two questions
Are dreams and reality a juxtaposition?
And what about normality and chaos?

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 11/21/2016 - 21:54
Yes, definitely. If a writer

Yes, definitely. If a writer decides to write a paragraph including both of those ideas then you may comment upon the juxtaposition created as it will exaggerate that difference and further it's prevalence in the readers mind.

HELP

Is tangible and solid a form of juxtaposition?

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 11/01/2016 - 02:24
No

Juxtaposition uses opposites so .. Tangible and air would be an example

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 11/16/2016 - 17:54
Juxtaposition isn't only

Juxtaposition isn't only opposites -- it is any two ideas or images placed side by side. They can be meant for contrast OR comparison.

Shouldn't oxymoron have the contrasting words used in pairs, like silent noise, clearly dim etc.?

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 07/19/2016 - 20:42
Yes

Oxymoronic phrases use two words that contradict each other.

Ex. Jumbo Shrimp; Shrimps usually being tiny, then calling them 'jumbo'

A woman giving birth on a battle field in the middle of a war would be juxtaposition. This scene would compare the beauty of life beginning to the gore of lives ending by force.

A city dump with a tranquil view of nature in the background (ocean, mountains, etc.).

Juxtaposition in THE GREAT GATSBY and SCHINDLER'S LIST

Tom and Daisy's house is juxtaposed with the apartment Tom has with Myrtle; the former is open and spacious, the latter is cramped and uncomfortable.
The Valley of the Ashes and East Egg are juxtaposed.
SCHINDLER'S LIST, the movie, uses juxtaposition throughout: the Nazis and the Jews, Schindler and Goeth. the scenes are placed right next to each other to highlight the contrasts.

Is this juxtaposition

Embarrassed or proud

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, 10/01/2015 - 22:08
Yes

Yes because you are putting two words with opposite meaning next to each other. Juxtaposition is like "rich and poor," "alive and dead," "good and evil," or "happy and sad."

"more alluring than any dream of buried gold"
is this juxtaposition?

No that's a simile: examples

No that's a simile:

examples of similes:

More beautiful than an angel
As peaceful as a blue river
As scared as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs
Hair as tough as rope

Posted by Anonymous on Sun, 04/24/2016 - 10:48
MIX UP

Only that first example is a Simile. The rest of those are Metaphors. Metaphors use "like" and "As" for comparison. A simile does not.
