Structural Analysis of Poetic Language:Examples of Kazakh poetry

Samal Aubakir



The language of poetry is different from the language of other literary genres. The language of the poem consists of many layers of meaning. It has ambiguity, homonymy, and connotative words.In this study, I analyze poem ‘Muse’ by contemporary Kazakh poet M. Makataev using the structural approach in order to find the elements (diction, imagery, rhyme, rhythm, pattern, sound and sense, and tone) andto figure out the exquisite features of his poetic art througha deconstructive study of the poem. Furthermore, I define the status of the poetic language and also analyze the poem on the grounds of different linguistic devices like its lexical features and to see how the structure of a poem can effect on the whole meaning of the poem. The poem expresses the idea in line by using diction, imagery, rhyme, rhythm, pattern, sound and sense, and tone as the elements of the poem. The elements in the poem have a role in the process of arrangement. It means that the elementstake a part in consideration of the poet in his writing process.
