Abstract:

Insistent Images presents a number of new departures dealing with iconicity
on the conceptual and the structural levels. On the level of structure, the
interface between different aspects of iconicity, lexical meaning and
grammar is discussed in reference to both spoken and signed languages.
Novel approaches to aural iconicity investigate a wide range of phenomena
from phonological iconicity to the role of iconic features in discourse, in
the nineteenth century practice of reading aloud, in the almost magic
incantations of poetry and in Tolkien's invented languages. Several papers
examine the function of iconicity in visual and avant-garde poetry, where
iconic features allow a reduction of means, which, paradoxically, generates
textual diversification and complexity. A discussion of iconic text
strategies shows how texts are comprehended through iconic holistic
transfer from complex natural and action patterns. 'Liberature', which
integrates text, image and physical space, is another novel area of study,
as are the investigations into the iconic properties of film and of
multimedia performance. Film is intrinsically iconic, while at the same
time being, like photography, indexical; in multimedia performance, on the
other hand, iconicity functions intermedially by both integrating and
reflecting processes of perception and conceptualization. These last two
new fields of inquiry further enhance this truly interdisciplinary volume's
explorations of icons as 'insistent images'.
