What is an antithesis? and I can i create one if my thesis is "Using the characters in these literary pieces both authors assert that humans are naturally inclined to exhibit dark or evil side". My 3 arguments are that metamorphises, quest for the surreal and immoral behaviours diplayed by these characters show that they are natueally inclined to be evil. BUt im not sure how to create an anthesis for each of these arguments.
Thanks in advance for the help

    An antithesis is the exact opposite.

    So if you are saying that they are naturally inclined to be evil...the opposite might be that society provoked them to be evil. That they had influences that caused them to be evil.

  • English -

    1. Definition of antithesis:
    1 a (1) : the rhetorical contrast of ideas by means of parallel arrangements of words, clauses, or sentences (as in “action, not words” or “they promised freedom and provided slavery”) (2) : opposition, contrast <the antithesis of prose and verse> b (1) : the second of two opposing constituents of an antithesis (2) : the direct opposite <her temperament is the very antithesis of mine>
    2 : the second stage of a dialectic process

    2. "inclined to exhibit dark or evil side" = I'd add "a" = exhibit a dark or evil side...
