Analysis of the Haiku structure

left to simmer
the kettle shrieks
until answered

laissée à mijoter
les pleurs de la bouilloire
jusqu'à ce qu'on lui ai répondu

Commentaire.

Ok, il y a personnification. Mais quelle belle image que cette pauvre bouilloire abandonnée ! La réussite d'un haïku ne tient pas aux respect de tous les critères, de toutes les règles mais parfois de l'originalité et de la force de l'image. N'en déplaise aux censeurs avec leur calculette.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* perso - Personification.
Personification. Projection of human feelings or behaviours on things or animals.

* simili - Similitudes.
Use of images with common semes. The sharing of common semes (qualities, characteristics) makes images reinforce each other. There is resonance because the mind makes the relationship between the two images.

A cup of tea and a lake share the fact that they are an expanse of liquid surrounded by a rim. We can "see" the image of one in the other.

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

* avis - Opinion given by the author.
The author tells his/her views or an explanation. The speech is not neutral at the first level of reading/writing. This is not a haiku where the author explains to the reader what he or she should understand, usually completed and of no interest. Here, the author gives an indication that is part of the elements of the discourse in addition to the others and that is not a redundancy (redundancy, precision, explanation).

* perso - Personification.
Personification. Projection of human feelings or behaviours on things or animals.

* - Personification.
Personification. Projection of human feelings or behaviours on things or animals.
