Burke, Kenneth Duva

Kenneth Duva Burke, 1897–1993, American critic, b. Pittsburgh, Pa. He was music critic for The Dial (1927–29) and The Nation (1934–36). A profound thinker whose writings have influenced other critics, Burke saw literature as "symbolic action" —man must view everything through a haze of symbols (language).
