The recent interdisciplinary approach to stylistics has fostered the emergence of educational stylistics, discourse stylistics, cognitive stylistics, socio-pragmatic stylistics, socio-stylistics among others. Notwithstanding this development, some stylisticians still maintain the great divide between linguistic and literary stylistics preferring the latter to the former thereby suggesting that stylistics thrives more with literary than with non-literary works and that linguistic stylistics has little to contribute towards unpacking meanings in texts. Here, I scrutinize these claims by using both linguistic and literary approaches (eclectic) to analysis ‘the Shepherd's Psalm'. My preliminary findings suggest that both linguistic and literary approaches to analyses are not only capable of doing robust stylistic analysis of literary texts but they also provide rigorous and insightful results that support the interface between linguistics and literature and their complementary analytical read for both linguists and literary scholars.
