Abstract

In this paper, Zulfikar Ghose’s poem will be analyzed. Ghose is a Pakistani who writes poems in the English Language. He is known as one of the major Pakistani poets who opt for English as a medium of expression in spite of their mother-tongue/ national language. He now lives in Austin, Texas, USA and teaches as a professor at Texas university. Ghose is an internationally recognized poet with more than fifty poems in English to his credit. This analysis will help us reach this conclusion whether his poetic style is similar to the style of the poets who write poems in English as their first language or it is different. This stylistic analysis will also be helpful in analyzing other poems by Pakistani poets who chose or choose English as their medium of expression. A brief literature review presents an explanation given by the linguists of various linguistic terms commonly which are used in presenting a Stylistic analysis of the poetic works. The overall Syntactic study will serve as a guide to the readers to analyze other poetic works at this Linguistic level.
