Theory:

Antithesis is a figure of speech that refers to the positioning of opposing or contrasting ideas/words by means of parallelism- that is, a similar word-order and structure.
Example:
  • She could be as white as sunlight or as black as midnight.
  • One small step for a man, one giant leap for all mankind.
  • They promised freedom and provided slavery.
Antithesis from the poem "Fire and Ice":
Some say the world will end in fire / Some say in ice.
