Analysis of the Haiku structure

in the hospice
an out of tune piano helps
her sing without words

à l'hospice
un piano désaccordé accompagne
son chant sans paroles

Commentaire.

La Vie. Malgré tout. Ici, c'est le schéma de la Vie qui s'épuise avec un motif rare qui illustre bien le désespoir. Un haïku d'atmosphère, très dur. Le contexte n'est pas la nature et son cycle, mais il fait partie de notre cycle à nous. C'est donc un kigo de l'Homme. Il est de plus marqué par l'archétype de la Chute

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* S1 - Folded sentence.
Haiku in one folded sentence.

* 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.

* atmosphère - 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.

* 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

* 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.
