(Latin for 'to join' and 'to place') is a placing in nearness or contiguity, or side by side, often done in order to compare and contrast the two in order to show similarity and differences. Usually Creates an effect of surprise and wit. Juxtaposition is also a form of contrast by which writers call attention to dissimilar ideas or images or metaphors.

An example could be Martin Luther King's letter from Birmingham Jail: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
