Button, Button is the title of a short story by Richard Mathewson. The title has the same word two times. Is it the use epizeuxis to lay stress like Papa, Papa I want to go to picnic? If not, how will we define it in terms of grammar?

Yes I think the use of a double word in a title usually emphaises and stresses on the word "button" in this case. So this should be epizeuxis as you have mentioned.
