The objective of this scholarly paper is to describe the stylistic aspects of the poems of Wiji Thukul. The aspects included dictions, language styles, and images. The poems of Wiji Thukul studied were taken from his poem collections of Aku Ingin Jadi Peluru and Para Jendral Marah-Marah: Kumpulan Puisi Wiji Thukul dalam Pelarian. They were "Para Jendral Marah-Marah", "Puisi Menolak Patuh", "Nyanyian Akar Rumput", "Peringatan", "Catatan", "Banjir", "Ujung Rambut Ujung Kuku", Ketika Datang Malam", "Ayo Kita Tebakan", and "Maklumat Penyair". The result of analysis shows that of all of the poems of Wiji Thukul 10 data use dictions with connotative words, 28 data use dictions with denotative words, and 25 data use dictions with concrete words. In addition, the dominant language styles are irony and cynicism, which describe the inequality persisting between the bourgeoisie and the marginalized groups. Finally, the dominant images found in the poems of Wiji Thukul are vision image and motion image. The dictions, language styles, and images employed by Wiji Thukul aim at amplifying the social and political protests against New Order through poems.
