neige à la fenêtre
comme la vapeur du thé
son dos nu

Commentaire.

La force de ce haïku provient de l'originalité et de la richesse des juxtapositions. Oppositions chaud-froid couleurs: thé-neige vapeur-neige Richesse du non-dit, donc de ce que le lecteur va ajouter de son vécu. Haiku multisensuel (vue, toucher, odeur).

Structure of this haiku.

Schema and motifs :

Schéma : sss024 Cold weather and hot food.
  Motif : mmm003 - Cold weather / hot food

Used techniques :


* 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.

Effects: liadyn - Binding with dynamics effects


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

Description level: 5-strp - Deep structure (schemas, patterns, cultural, associations, similarities)


* inversion - 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.

Effects: liadyn - Binding with dynamics effects


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

Description level: 5-strp - Deep structure (schemas, patterns, cultural, associations, similarities)


* 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.

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

Archetypes and dialectics

* D_IntExt - In <> Out.


* D_ChaudFroid - Warm <> Cold.
