Abstract

From the perspective of formalist critics, form is important and content is secondary. Unlike the traditional criticism of literature, formalism focuses on form of a given text and endeavours to dissect meanings and theme. The current research work is focused on comparative formalist analysis of Daud Kamal’s poem Ode to Death and Emily Dickinson’s poem I heard a fly Buzz-when I died. These poems are taken for formalistic analysis because these are one of the best poems written by poets in terms of their style, diction and themes. Furthermore, this study investigates literary devices that are used in the selected poems. The study utilizes qualitative approach by using a textual analysis.
