Burke, Kenneth


"A Grammar of Motives," published in 1945, is the first volume of a gigantic trilogy, planned to includeA Rhetoric of MotivesandA Symbolic of Motives,which will be called something likeOn Human Relations. The aim of the whole series is no less than the comprehensive exploration of human motives and the forms of thought and expression built around them, and its ultimate object, expression in the epigraph:'ad bellum purificandum,'is to eliminate the whole world of conflict that can be eliminated through understanding. The method or key metaphor for the study is 'drama' or 'dramatism,' and the basic terms of analysis are the dramatistic pentad: Act, Scene, Agent, Agency, and Purpose. TheGrammar,which Burke confesses in the Introduction grew from a prolegomena of a few hundred words to nearly 200,000, is a consideration of the purely internal relationship of these five terms, 'their possibilities of transformation, their range of permutations and combinations'..."--Stanley Edgar Hyman, author ofThe Armed VisionBurke, Kenneth is the author of 'Grammar of Motives.', published 1969 under ISBN 9780520015449 and ISBN 0520015444.
