Analysis of the Haiku structure

epiphany -
the gift of a dead mouse
at the door

épiphanie -
le cadeau d'une souris morte
sur le seuil

Analogie brutale entre les cadeaux des Rois Mages et cette souris morte. Le haïku permet facilement ces chocs brutaux d'images qui vont résonner longtemps dans la tête du lecteur.


Epiphany death mouse

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* juxtaposition - Juxtaposition.
Use of images placed side by side to create an effect superior to that of each separate image. It is not a resonance effect as in similarity but rather a composition effect as in a painting or still life.

As the juxtaposed images have no or very few common semes, they compose a new global image in relation to its components.

* psycho - Haiku with a psychological background.
Haiku can have a reading level that expresses an underlying psychological situation that is still active. It is not sure if this analysis is accurate. It can simply exist in the reader's mind. It is almost always absent from the author's intention, as can be seen from the author's request for information.

Archetypes and dialectics

* A_Mort - Death.

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