Perspectivism and Form in Drama: A Burkean Analysis of "Julius Caesar."
Weier, Gary M.
Communication Quarterly, v44 n2 p246-59 Spr 1996
Employs a critical application of Kenneth Burke's notions of form and perspectivism. Argues for the potential of a complementary relationship between form and perspectivism in the appeal of rhetorical artifacts. Claims that form is perspectival, limiting possibilities for appropriate interpretations within a text. Applies this theoretical perspective to "Julius Caesar" to illuminate its rhetorical appeal.
