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!

Sepia Saturday: Ana de Mendoza, Princess Eboli from Verdi's "Don Carlo"

This past week, I had to remove my right contact lens for a day and replace it with an eye patch. A colleague passed by my office and made a comment about Verdi's opera, Don Carlo whose character, Princess Eboli, dons an eye patch. (Too bad she shares her title with a fatal bacteria.) This colleague is also the chairman of our World Languages and Literature Department, so of course, she provided me with some wonderful sites to support her statement. When I viewed these videos, I thought this would make a great 'Sepia Saturday' contribution! I hope you enjoy them...
