Paradoxism is a form of prose where the author creates sensible expressions by using contradictory phrases. Invented by the Rumanian author/mathematician Florentin Smarandache as a response to communist repression, it is a unique and interesting style of writing. Smarandache actively solicits contributions from readers for collections into books such as this.
Like all such collections, there is substantial variation in the quality of the material. As I read more of the paradoxist literature, my appreciation of it has grown. The best examples reach the level of good satire, with multiple meanings, the best of which will raise your brows. While most of the entries in this book do not reach that level, some do and make reading the book worthwhile.
If you like wordplay or deep satire, then you should investigate paradoxist literature. It is a unique form of expression that requires some thought to appreciate. ....
