Partout en France

la saison des pommes

Commentaire.

Il est difficile de faire du haïku de protestation car le message précède le discours. Et comme on veut bien dire, on le fait mal. Mais ici, l'auteure a réussi le tour de force en se basant sur l'humour et le double sens des mots. Il faut remarquer l'habile rôle de pivot de la branche qui transforme le message en contexte de saison.

Used techniques :


* multisens - Synestesia - Multi-senses perception.

Effects: liadyn - Binding with dynamics effects


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

Description level: 2-trait - Style,subject handling


* 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)


* S1 - Folded sentence.
Haiku in one folded sentence in two or three lines.

Effects: decod - Decoding the structure.
Affects the time required to understand the speech by the time required to decode the structure. Groups the elements by physical and temporal caesuras.

At the level: 0-form - Formal level
Formal appearance, written forms.

Description level: 1-pres - Formal representation
