➔ JUXTAPOSITION ➔ a person, concept, place, idea or theme placed parallel to another in a story: ➔ the purpose of juxtaposing two related entities close together in literature is to highlight the contrast between the two and compare them EXAMPLES: ➔ Lenny and George ➔ Good and Evil ➔ Mike and Sully ➔ Legolas and Gimli ➔ Different Realities/Worlds (like in “The Matrix”) ➔ "Her rosy lips touched her withered cheek."

➔ MOTIF ➔ an object or idea that repeats itself throughout a literary work; ➔ a recurrent image, idea, contrast, or symbol that develops or explains a theme FOR EXAMPLE: ➔ Loneliness/Companionship ➔ Strength/Weakness ➔ Sensory details, like the beating of a heart ➔ The ring of power  ➔ The yellow-brick road
