An oxymoron is a statement that is made up of contradicting elements that ultimately invalidate the statement altogether. This device can be accidental or intentional and can potentially open up a paradox as well. Oxymorons can also be present in everyday objects, such as artificial grass and electric candles.

Literary Example:

"And faith unfaithful kept him falsely true." -Idylls of the King
