Visual, auditory, and cognitive iconicity in written literature: The example of Emily Dickinson’s “Because I could not stop for Death”

Abstract [en]

This article demonstrates an analytical approach that might be used as a methodfor disentangling the manifold iconic layers and aspects of written literature.The goal is to make a clear and practice-oriented presentation of some of the most overarching types of iconicity, based on the assumption that iconicity – as representation in general – must be understood in terms of both sensory activity and cognition. One specific literary text, Emily Dickinson’s poem “BecauseI could not stop for Death” (1862), is analyzed as an example via a broad fieldof iconic traits, structured as visual, auditory, and cognitive iconicity. Although applied to a visual, literary text, the delineated method may be extended to anyother kind of medium, taking into account relevant sensory properties and cognitive aspects.
