Analysis of the Haiku structure

oeuf à la coque -
trois minutes à regarder
tomber la neige

Virginie Colpart, France

Juxtaposition-opposition originale entre la cuisson des oeufs (chaleur) et la neige (froid). C'est, malgré la brièveté du moment, un haiku sur le Temps qui passe et, dans ce cas-ci, sa lenteur. Similitude possible entre le blanc (de l'oeuf) et celui de la neige.

Structure of this haiku.

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

* 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)

Archetypes and dialectics

* A_Temps - Time.

* D_IntExt - In <> Out.
