Analysis of the Haiku structure
winter rain --
a birthday reminder
for a dead friend
pluie d'hiver --
un rappel de l'anniversaire
d'un ami décédé
Paul David Mena, USA
Haïku meteo. L'auteur utilise la sensation de la pluie froide pour dire son impression. La pluie froide est toujours le marqueur d'un malaise, d'une peine profonde, parfois soudaine comme ce souvenir.
rain winter death friend
Structure of this haiku.
Used techniques :
* archetype - Active archetypes.
Active presence of archetypes that have determined relationships between images. Archetypes are structures that have aggregated semes (meanings) and are patterns inherited from the collective unconscious. These are the models that we use to organize our perception of the World.
e.g. Night, Fire, Death, Fall, Frontier...
Night: gloomy, dark, cold, threatening (lack of visibility of potential dangers), dangerous (legacy of ancient times), loss of Light, linked to the Unconscious through dreams and nightmares, silent world, mysterious, unknown, populated by fantastical beings.
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)
* meteo - Meteo used to create an atmosphere.
Use in a haiku segment of a reference to the weather (weather conditions) that provides more than just the mention of the weather as a background. The reference refers to a state of weather that has physical (cold rain, sudden hail, frost,...) or psychological (overcast sky, storm warning, sultry afternoon...) effects. These effects are mainly felt through the skin (contact, temperature,...); which connects the author/reader to the World (his direct environment).
The mentioned weather and its effects share a set of semes (brutality, unpredictability, "cold", psychologically oppressive climate,...) with the situation experienced by the author.
A sudden and unpleasant change of situation shares semes (brutality, unpredictability, impact) with a sudden storm, hail, cold rain. A hard time to live, a disappointment, with a cold rain. An overcast weather before the rain shares with a moment when we fear the occurrence of events that we fear.
Although the meteo is often used as a marker (kigo - word of season), it sometimes brings more than just the place in the season or the context of the moment.
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_Mort - Death.
Contexte de mort (deuil, décès, cimetière...) ou pulsion de mort (guerre, violence...).
