Analysis of the Haiku structure

macchie di rosso...
soltanto papaveri
nell'erba verde

red stains...
poppies only
in the green grass

taches de rouge...
seulement des coquelicots
dans l'herbe verte

Allusion aux guerriers morts (anglo-saxons) dans ce haïku en période de guerre. Il était plus compréhensible à l'époque que 13 années après. C'est aussi un exemple d'élément culturel (les cocquelicots) qui passent difficilement d'une culture à l'autre. A noter l'opposition de couleur créant une dynamique dans ce haïku.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* archetype - Active archetypes.
Active presence of archetypes that have determined relationships between images. These archetypes are structures that have aggregated seeds (meanings) and are patterns inherited from the collective unconscious. These are the models that we use to organize our perception of the World.

* feuilleté - Multilevel discourse, layered haiku.
Haikus with two (or more) reading levels. A first objective level referring to a situation, another underlying level saying something else. The Chinese are fond of this type of discourse with many levels.

These various levels may be conscious or unconscious.

We find a little bit of this technique consciously applied in the weather haiku. The weather element can be understood as an mention to the weather and as the element that creates the atmosphere of haiku.

The two levels of discourse are conscious and disjointed and well visible in haiku tanka, of which they form the two parts. However, they overlap in the layered haiku.

* opposition - Images in opposition.
Images with a group of opposite senses. The images are in opposition to each other. However, the opposite semes are grouped into dialectics. A dialectic is composed of opposite semes, like the two sides, poles of the same grade.

For example:
- Top and Bottom.
- Inside and Outside
- Big and Tiny

Archetypes and dialectics

* A_PointActif - Active point (color, sound, ...)

Variante de la Couleur. Ici, c'est un point, généralement de couleur qui a le rôle important. En fait, cet archétype illustre le fait que c'est l'Inconscient qui analyse les images de notre regard. C'est lui qui repère ces points et y dirige notre regard.

* A_Couleur - An active color.

Une couleur semble avoir un rôle actif dans la situation. Elle marque le discours pour son importance.

A mettre en relation avec le Point Actif qui est plus général car il peut être aussi un son.

* A_Mort - Death.

Contexte de mort (deuil, décès, cimetière...) ou pulsion de mort (guerre, violence...).
