The book has a pulse, which strengthens and weakens with perfect pacing so you get a little time to breathe before the next plunge into the characters. Examples of Paradoxes in Poetry. The seemingly self-contradictory statements of a paradox such as “less is more” or “sweet sorrow” may cause the reader to pause and reflect on the underlying meaning of the contradiction. Upon close reflection, a paradox does not . Below are listed a large number of book title puns, sorted according to author's last name. Please send suggestions to the above address. Many of these are pretty lame, so if you have any improvements, send them along! Those given to me may be altered to some degree to, IMHO, "improve" them, but all submissions will be duly credited.
