Analysis of the Haiku structure

fighting illness-
the darkness before the light
of the new year

luttant contre la maladie -
l'obscurité avant la lumière
de l'année nouvelle

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* association - Associations.
Images in association. Interaction comes from the sharing of only a part of the semes. There are no similarities or oppositions that create a dynamic. However, the relationship is stronger than in the juxtaposition that places images side by side without semantic relationships between them.

* 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.

* absence - The main element is not explicit.
The haiku is structured around an unnamed element to which each image refers. The interest is to save the space that would be used by naming the element while having the effect it produces.

The haiku can appear as a vault from which the scaffolding has been removed. If the haiku is well composed, the main element is absent but everything refers to it.

This technique delays storage in memory because the reader must complete the discourse with the unnamed element so that the haiku is unambiguously understandable. It then acquires a higher memory weight.

Archetypes and dialectics

* A_LumièreNuit - The Light in the Night.

Tout ce qui apparait au propre comme au figuré comme une lumière dans la nuit. Un espoir, le bout du tunnel. Un abri. Le phare. La survivance d'une chose noyée dans un univers "hostile".

* A_Nuit - The Night.

La nuit primale, avec son obscurité, ses "dangers", ses mystères et nos peurs millénaires.

* A_Reveil - The Awakening, Reliving.

Quelque chose s'éveille, qui était "endormi". Qui renait après une période d'absence. Il se signale.

* D_ClairSombre - Light <> Darkness.

* A_Lumière - The Light.

La Lumière.
A mettre en relation avec la Lumière dans la Nuit.

* T_Lent - Slow Time.
