In Kenneth Burke's _Language as Symbolic Action_, "_Coriolanus_--and the
Delights of Faction," pp. 81 ff., "Shakespearean Persuasion: -Antony and
Cleopatra_," part 1 (pp. 101-105), and "Form and Persecution in the
_Oresteia_," at leat part 1 (pp.125-28). As always with Burke, the
specific play he discusses is a "representative anecdote" be used to make
a broader set of points about tragedy, drama, literature.
