Climax Definition:Climax:consists of arranging words, clauses, or sentences in the order of increasing importance, weight, or emphasis. Parallelism usually forms a part of the arrangement, because it offers a sense of continuity, order, and movement-up the ladder of importance.
Examples:1) The concerto was applauded at the house of Baron von Schnooty, it was praised highly at court, it was voted best concerto of the year by the Academy, it was considered by Mozart the highlight of his career, and it has become known today as the best concerto in the world. 2) At 6:20 a.m. the ground began to heave. Windows rattled; then they broke. Objects started falling from shelves. Water heaters fell from their pedestals, tearing out plumbing. Outside, the road began to break up. Water mains and gas lines were wrenched apart, causing flooding and the danger of explosion. Office buildings began cracking; soon twenty, thirty, forty stories of concrete were diving at the helpless pedestrians panicking below. 3) To have faults is not good, but faults are human. Worse is to have them and not see them. Yet beyond that is to have faults, to see them, and to do nothing about them. But even that seems mild compared to him who knows his faults, and who parades them about and encourages them as though they were virtues. Miss America was not so much interested in serving herself as she was eager to serve her family, her community, and her nation.
Literary Examples1) But we glory also in tribulations, knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience trial; and trialhope; and hope confoundeth not, because the charity of God is poured forth in our hearts, by the Holy Ghost, who is given to us. —St. Paul2) One equal temper of heroic hearts, Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. – Tennyson, Ulysses3) In Cinderella, the climactic moment of the plot occurs when Cinderella fits her foot into the glass slipper, thereby “winning” marriage with the Prince. In many stories, there are several points in the plot which are plausible crises.
Enthymeme • An informally-stated syllogism which omits either one of the premises or the conclusion. • Basically, a part of the sentence is implied, not given. • The omitted part must be clearly understood.
