Analysis of the Haiku structure

assise à l'écart
sous ses cheveux blancs -
sa mémoire de neige

Commentaire.

L3 est une image poétique n'ayant pas normalement sa place dans un haïku. Cependant, elle apporte une force glaçante au discours et en plus, elle exprime parfaitement le sujet du discours. A noter la résonnance dans le domaine de la blancheur entre L2 et L3. Et surtout la manière très pudique d'exprimer une situation si délicate.

Structure of this haiku.

Used techniques :

* S21 - Caesura between L2 and L3.
Caesura between L2 and L3.

* poesie - Use of poetical devices.
Use of poetical devices.

* 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.

* feuilleté - Multilevel discourse, layered haiku.
Haikus with two (or more) reading levels. A first objective level referring to a situation, another underlying level saying something else. The Chinese are fond of this type of discourse with many levels.

These various levels may be conscious or unconscious.

We find a little bit of this technique consciously applied in the weather haiku. The weather element can be understood as an mention to the weather and as the element that creates the atmosphere of haiku.

The two levels of discourse are conscious and disjointed and well visible in haiku tanka, of which they form the two parts. However, they overlap in the layered haiku.
