Analysis of the Haiku structure

divorce talk
each sip of tea more bitter
than the last

on parle du divorce
chaque gorgée de thé plus amère
que la précédente

Commentaire.

On pourrait dire qu'il s"agit d'un haïku météo mais c'est ici une nourriture (thé) qui joue le rôle de la météo pour passer au lecteur des ressentis. Similitude entre deux niveaux différents de discours . Les signifiants : conversation et l'amertume du thé (superficiel) et l'amertume de la situation (signifié, profond). Parallélisme du discours des niveaux superficiel et profond.

Structure of this haiku.

Schema and motifs :

Schéma :
  Motif : mmm054 -

Used techniques :


* atmosphere - Atmosphere.
Something emerges from all the elements that constitute haiku: a climate, an atmosphere. The author does not state this explicitly. It is the reader who reconstructs it from his or her own experience.

This is especially true in three-segment haiku, also called "grocery list". But this effect can also be achieved in other ways.

The mention of feelings related to the weather and taste adds a multisensory dimension to the atmosphere created.

Effects: liasen - Binding with sensorial feelings.


At the level: 1-surf - Surface level
Discourse, surface structures, content, subject, style.
