Studying the verses of Heaven and Hell in the light of Charles Paley's stylistic theory (the synthetic level as a model)
Keywords:verses of heaven, verses of fire, stylistics, Charles Paley, synthetic level
The science of stylistics is one of the sciences that agree with language in general, because language is a facet from which the science of stylistics is derived to make, the theoretical framework, within a certain scale. From this point of view, Charles Bally, as a Swiss linguist, is one of Ferdinand De Saussure's students, as he created a new method in stylistics entitled the descriptive level (synthetic or graphic). One of his intellectual products on this occasion is that he made a wide place for expression beyond expression of feeling and emotion. In this light, the article aims, through the study of the theoretical dimension, to reveal the cover of what stylistics is and the consequent dimensions and limitations, and by focusing on the practical dimension, the application of stylistics, especially synthetic ones, to the verses that permeated "Heaven and Hell". Among the findings of this article is that the synthetic stylistics and its pillars of “advancement and delay” and so on, show us that the verses of Heaven and Hell have these pillars, on the basis of the criterion of negative and positive emotions in general.
