Burkes Reading Method in the Force Field between the 'Intrinsic' and 'Extrinsic' Apporach towards Literature

This research project aims at an analysis of Kenneth Burke's method of reading against the background of the force field between 'intrinsic' and 'extrinsic' approaches towards literature. Based on a corpus of sample readings confonting burke's analysis of a number of literature texts with contemporary readings by Brooks, Richards and Girard, I will try to demonstrate how Burke has dealt with this force field, and how it has influenced hist thought.
