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

Poem for TFE's Assignment and Iconic Realism

Okay, TFE, it's 7:03 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, and here I go: First day of classes Signed my contract so there'll be money paid for the smiles I give the smiles I receive, for fears released and grade point averages increased. I'm happy, a bit tired but filled with joy... I love my job, a gift for sure.

Wasn't sure if my posting went through on your blog, TFE, so I came over here and posted it....still within the time frame.


  1. Bang on time! Well done, Jeanne.Real nice little vignette of your day (glad your getting paid)No sign of panic or pressure at all!It must be all the harp playing.Thanks a milion for joining in.You'll like the next assignment, I hope?

  2. bravo!
    interesting there are so many teachers of various stripes participating.

  3. Thanks, TFE and NanU.

    Now, to apply this 'assignment' to iconic realism, one only needs to view TFE's blog title, then note that this 'eejit' has assembled educators and writers from around the world with his exceptional wit, a juxtaposition of an icon in a setting not formerly perceived as the accepted setting for an 'eejit.' Through this juxtaposition, one is able to focus on the individual poet within, truly cultural awareness.
