Analysis of the Haiku structure

fitful sleep —
a single bark in the dark
then silence

sommeil agité —
un seul aboiement dans le noir
puis le silence

Commentaire.

Haïku basé sur les archétypes de Cri dans la Nuit. Le discours a, ici, un fond psychologique profond, décelable par l'insomnie qui est un moment particulier et une fenêtre sur les profondeurs. On voit ici, un discours de surface et on devine un discours profond différent mais partageant une partie des sèmes.

Structure of this haiku.

Schema and motifs :

Schéma : sss040 Me and the World.
  Motif : mmm079 - Me and the World.

Used techniques :


* 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

Effects: liadyn - Binding with dynamics effects


At the level: 1-surf - Surface level
Discourse, surface structures, content, subject, style.

Description level: 2-strs - Organization, surface structures


* 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.

Effects: liainc - Binding to the Unconscious


At the level: 2-prof - Deep level
Deep and non explicit structures, active objects of the unconscious.

Description level: 6-inf - Active infrastructure (archetypes, dialectics)


* progression - Advance.
Structure with a spatial or time oriented advance.

Effects: reinter - Reworking at the end.


At the level: 1-surf - Surface level
Discourse, surface structures, content, subject, style.

Description level: 2-strs - Organization, surface structures


* 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.

Effects: liainc - Binding to the Unconscious


At the level: 2-prof - Deep level
Deep and non explicit structures, active objects of the unconscious.

Description level: 5-vecu - Personal(Experienced, psycho, acquired...)


* atmosphere - 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.

Effects: liasen - Binding with sensorial feelings.


At the level: 1-surf - Surface level
Discourse, surface structures, content, subject, style.

Description level: 3-suj - Subject, content

Archetypes and dialectics

* A_Cri - The Cry.

Le cri. Un être produit un son bref. Sans relation avec les causes de ce cri. Il peut être en relation avec la douleur, la peur, la violence, l'effort. Ce n'est pas nécessairement un appel pour nous.

Parfois relié à l'Appel.

* A_Nuit - The Night.

La nuit primale, avec son obscurité, ses "dangers", ses mystères et nos peurs millénaires.

* D_MoiMonde - I versus the World

Mention d'un être qui se dstincte par rapport au reste du Monde.
