Could you please explain the chiasmus thing. I looked it up on Wiki to find out what it is. What are some examples and why is it important?

Jeff Lindsay is the best resource I've seen on the subject and he does a much better job of detailing why it's important and where it's found that I could. Here's a link to Jeffs work on chiasmus:
