This study is based on a stylistic analysis of the poem 'The Lunatic' by a great modern poet of Nepal, Laxmi Prasad Devkota. This analysis focuses on the foregrounding, metaphors, graphological, phonological, morphological, and semantic levels to explore and analyze what the poet wants to convey by describing his own experiences, showing the complex relationship between the poet and people living in the society that is going through social transformation. Stylistic techniques and methods are tactfully used to unfold the hidden feelings and experiences of the poet's life. Keeping in view stylistics is the study of different devices employed in language that give literary style and beauty to any writing; this article aims to explore and reveal hidden realities of poetic lines used in the poem 'The Lunatic'.
