Analysis of the Haiku structure

so much bigger
than its bottle —
essence of lavender

tellement plus grand
que son flacon —
l'essence de lavande

Commentaire.

Un autre haïku basé sur une dislocation du discours. Le sujet n'est défini qu'a posteriori. Ici, on a en plus la particularité que le pronom sujet n'est pas exprimé en L1, mais sous-entendu (ellipse économisant l'espace).

Structure of this haiku.

Schema and motifs :

Schéma :
  Motif : mmm059 -

Used techniques :

* 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).

* dislocation - Dislocation.
Dislocation: repetition of the subject at the end (or at the beginning) of the sentence. The repeated subject is then specified. This delays understanding and insists on the main subject of the speech.

ex: He loses his leaves, the tree.
