Mythic Evolution of "The New Frontier" in Mass Mediated Rhetoric.
Rushing, Janice Hocker
Critical Studies in Mass Communication, v3 n3 p265-96 Sep 1986
Combines "rhetorical narration" with K. Burke's dramatistic pentad to argue that definitional cultural myths are rhetorically meaningful in relation to social consciousness if both evolved teleologically. Delineates two phases in America's frontier myth associated with recent space fiction films' representation of a pentadic term's transformation from land to space. (JD)
