Commentaire.

Un étrange haïku. L2 est pivot à double sens de lecture au niveau superficiel. Il est cependant difficile de saisir exactement le sens du discours. Est-ce la mère ou l'image de la mère projetée sur celle de l'auteure ? Même parvenu à la fin de la lecture, nous ne savons pas. A noter l'archetype du Reflet dans la miroir. Bien étudier cette technique.

Used techniques :

* auteur - Presence of the author.
Presence of the author in the haiku, the author stages himself but does not necessarily speak about him.

* 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.

* pivot - Pivotal element.
Use of a pivot element as a link between two different parts of the haiku. This element belongs to both parts.

* lectures - Multiple readings. Several possible meanings.
Haiku has several possible meanings but always at the surface level. It is not a question of a layered discourse where the meaning of surface and deep differs. Not to be confused with layered discourse with a surface discourse and one or more deep discourses.

Archetypes and dialectics

* T_Cycle - Cyclical Time.
