Welcome! A few years ago, I discovered an application that artists employ in their works to bring cultural awareness to their audiences. Having discerned this semiotic theory that applies to literature, music, art, film, and the media, I have devoted the blog, "Theory of Iconic Realism" to explore this theory. The link to the publisher of my book is below. If you or your university would like a copy of this book for your library or if you would like to review it for a scholarly journal, please contact the Edwin Mellen Press at the link listed below. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Thank you for visiting. I hope you will find the information insightful. ~ Dr. Jeanne Iris

Dixit Dominus 
by Jeanne I. Lakatos

The chorus swells; waves rush in,
their flow controlled 
by the canal's turbid banks. 
Membrane pulsates - 
Malleus, Incus Stapes
vibrate
through a liquid universe. 
Electrical impulses meander
in and out and around 
minuscule hair cells within
majestic cochlea, sitting on its throne,
dormant. 
Eighth nerve to the brain reaches out.
Mozart sheds a heavenly tear. 
This perfect one will never hear
Dixit Dominus.
