Abstract

The research paper scrutinizes the stylistic and poetic patterns fictionalized in the poem, On the Departing Season by Ahmed Ali- one of the prolific literary figures in the progressive movement in the subcontinent, based on the undertaken research framework of stylistic foregrounding to highlight the defamiliarization technique implied by the poet that can offer an alternative understanding to the already taken studies on the art of the poet. Moreover, a notable body of research can be found out on Ahmed Ali as a novelist from diverse perspectives; however, his poetry has not been plumbed into that has created a research gap to be filled in. The study, therefore, contends that the used patterns are motivated for diversity of alternate meanings in the poem. The poet through the vivacious technique of the defamiliarization in his poetry not only epitomized his native and colonized thoughts fraught in the indigenous flora and fauna to the world but the artist also applied the abrogation strategy of English by defamiliarizing it from what’s called a standard colonizers’ language i.e., English.
