Sajid Ahmad, Sajid Ali, Rashid Mahmood, Muhammad Asaf Amir

Abstract


The words of poetry not only speak of their ideology but also carve pictures in the minds of the readers. I chose this poem, ‘Wedding in the Flood’ for many reasons: it certainly manifests the Pakistani culture but its structure speaks of its complex narrative ingenuity, its syntactic and phonological parallelism, its unique lexical and semantic features and how all these features collectively enhance the cultural aspect of the poem. This research article tries to analyze the unique features of the poem ‘Wedding in the Flood’ in order to have a deeper understanding of the content and form of the poem.
