The main aim of the research is to identify a literary uniqueness of poetic text from the point of view of stylistic lexical structure as well as to the analysis of translation peculiarities. The topicality of this research is proved by the necessity to study poetic text as a unit containing both linguistic and esthetic value. The method of linguopoetic analysis allows to analyze both language form and esthetic content simultaneously in a fiction text. Such method of text analysis gives a vision of uniqueness of an author’s manner style, helps to reveal stylistically marked units of a text and their role in a work. As W.B. Yeats is not so widely known in the Russian language circles as other English and American poets and writers, peculiarities of his poetic language need to be investigated profoundly. Idiostyle characteristic of W.B. Yeats depends on the peculiarities of language personality, verbal associations, manner of environment perception, world vision and motivating paradigms, cultur-historical sources, philosophic views intrinsic to the personality. The work is based on selection of means of literary expressiveness and comparison of the origin with its translation. Consequently, the changes in quantity of liquopoetic items, emotional and esthetic effect were determined. As a result of the analysis stylistic marker-speech figures which make a text more expressive and lexically diverse were singled out. Various kinds belong to them: metaphor, metonymy, epitome, epithet, hyperbole, comparison, synecdoche and etc. The work to find lexico-semantic markers, such as wordplay and author elements which create a peculiar character of a text has been carried out.

Keywords: poetics, idiostyle, anaphora, epiphora, polysindeton, liquopoetic analysis, assonance.
