into the silence
the piercing wail

Commentaire.

Haïku basé sur plusieurs archetypes importants. La Nuit, le Cri (dans la nuit), le Voyage (et par là, l'Espace). La juxtaposition des ces éléments donne un force particulière au discours. On peut aussi noter que l'effet est seulemnt obtenu juste à la fin; ce qui force le lecteur à une réinterprétation pour en comprendre pleinement le sens. On retrouve aussi le motif du train dans la nuit.

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)


* juxtaposition - Juxtaposition.
Use of images placed side by side to create an effect superior to that of each separate image. It is not a resonance effect as in similarity but rather a composition effect as in a painting or still life.

As the juxtaposed images have no or very few common semes, they compose a new global image in relation to its components.

Deep and non explicit structures, active objects of the unconscious.

* 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...)

Archetypes and dialectics

* A_Nuit - The Night.

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

* 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_Voyage - The Travel.

Le voyage, la migration... Lié à la Route qui elle est plus en potentialités que le Voyage qui est action.
