The Shape of Thrills to Come

By Andy King

Next issue will feature several interviews with leading Burke scholars.  These interviews are wide ranging.  One scholar will reveal to us that he found Burke “nearly incoherent for more than a decade before finding the key.”  Another is bitter at his colleagues in English for not recognizing Burke’s genius “until it was too late.”  Yet another thinks Burke “had no real system and no evolving idea” and that “we have created a guru out of his scattered ideas.” 

Scholars like Richard Thames, David Cratis Willliams and Jim Klumpp will talk about their Burkean odyssey in the Fall 2009 number.  Don’t miss the next spine-tingling issue coming out in late August.
