Abstract

The present study aims to examine the figurative language of the selected poems of Plath to reveal the way, the poetess conveyed the target meanings to the readers. A sample of three particular poems written by Plath has been taken through purposive sampling technique. Meanwhile, Leech and Short's (2006) stylistics model has been applied as the framework of this study. Hence, the results show the constant use of certain stylistic features done by Plath like simile, metaphor, imagery, personification and symbols to highlight the sufferings of women in contemporary society. Moreover, the researcher is hopeful that the particular study will not only motivate the future researchers to examine some other work of Plath but will also leave a ground to reinvestigate the findings of this study itself.
