Analysis of the Haiku structure

soir de tempête
l'effervescence de l'eau
dans la bouilloire

Gérard Dumon, France
cco 2016-02-1


Une tempête dans un verre d'eau. Belle similitude entre l'agitation des éléments (l'Eau en l'occurence). On peut remarquer aussi la dynamique entre l'eau libre externe (tempête) et l'eau enfermée (bouilloire). Et l'archétype du Microcosme (la "tempête" dans la bouilloire), le monde en petit, chez moi.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* 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

* 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.

* 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.

Archetypes and dialectics

* D_IntExt - In <> Out.

* A_Miniature - The Miniature.
