Focuses criticism upon the writings of Kenneth Burke.

"This is a powerful book. . . . We owe a debt of gratitude to James Chesebro. He and a few others have seen to it that Kenneth Burke's unique thought got a full and fair hearing from a new generation of scholars. This is because Chesebro has done what many others have failed to do. He has treated Burke's work not as a closed system but as a kind of resource that must be shaped anew for every challenge or question.

"This volume is the result of an open call for papers. Forty-three were submitted and considered by a selection committee that included Bernard Brock, James Klumpp, Dale Bertelson and Timothy Thompson. . . . Chesebro organized the volume into four movements [that] represent the ways in which Burke's system might continue to act as a fructifying influence in contemporary thought."—Burke Book Reviews, Kenneth Burke Society Newsletter
