During the time of Ba’athist Iraq (۱۹۶۸-۲۰۰۳), an incident occurred in Kurdish poet Sherko Bekas’ hometown Sulaimaniyah. Three students were shot dead on December ۱۷, ۱۹۸۵. Their deaths prompted Bekas to write his poem “The Martyrs' Wedding”. This paper approaches the linguistic construction of the three martyred students by using the framework of Critical Stylistics (Jeffries ۲۰۱۰). This approach is a further development of a stylistic analysis of poetry and especially suits to detect ideological meaning in the text as Bekas used the art of poetic writing to express his political stance on the murders. This analysis focuses on the repeated use of “three” in pre-modifying positions when naming the students and on negation foregrounded most prominently in eleven repetitions of the phrase “Do not ask (how)”. The present paper shows a way to decipher Bekas political statement by means of a detailed stylistic analysis and another critical view is added because this text is one of those that has the 'power to influence us' (Jeffries, ۲۰۱۰ p. ۱).
