This research paper attempts to interpret and analyse the romantic poetic piece “Breezy April” in a linguistic perceptive and aims at evaluating the diction used by the Nobel Laureate to express his emotions that he has earned and preserved in his psyche out of his personal affair with the mesmerising romantic nature. Evaluation of diction is neither purely linguistic nor literary and hence can be brought under the umbrella of stylistics. Stylistics explores the style of literary texts in varied aspects and therefore its boundary is unknown and infinite. Linguistic approach can be applied to any piece of literature and stylistics specifically attributes a scientific path in the wide landscape of literature. The present research intends and strives to examine Tagore’s diction by touching upon the five stylistic devices such as Apostrophe, Oxymoron, Pathetic Fallacy, Personification and Repetition.
Keywords: diction, nature, Rhetoric devices and breezy April.
