About the Author
Kenneth Burke was a self-taught thinker who attempted to integrate scientific and philosophical concepts with his analysis of semantics and literature. Between 1927 and 1929, Burke worked for the "Dial "as a music critic. After a brief stint with "The Nation "(1934-36), he turned to literary criticism and taught at Bennington College from 1943 to 1961. His many works have all been published by the University of California Press.
Joseph R. Gusfield was professor emeritus of sociology at the University of California, San Diego. His books include Contested Meanings: The Construction of Alcohol Problems and Mass Society and Extremist Politics.
