Assonance: Assonance is the repetition of vowel sounds. For example, there is a repetition of the vowel o sound in the following passage:
“Poetry is old, ancient, goes back far. It is among the oldest of living things. So old it is that no man knows how and why the first poems came.”
A paradox is a figure of speech in which a statement appears to contradict itself. For example:
"This is the beginning of the end."
