Representative Form and the Visual Ideograph: The Iwo Jima Image in Editorial Cartoons.
Edwards, Janis L.; Winkler, Carol K.
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v83 n3 p289-310 Aug 1997
Examines the rhetorical function of the 1945 photograph of the flag raising at Iwo Jima as it is appropriated in a number of recent editorial cartoons. Builds upon rhetorical theory addressing repetitive form and visual metaphor to propose a concept of representative form. Argues that the parodied Iwo Jima image operates as an instance of depictive rhetoric that functions ideographically. (SR)
