Excerpt from The Philosophy of Literary Form: Studies in Symbolic Action

As for analysis focused upon one work, probably my article on Hitler's Mein Kampf is the most complete example in these pages, with the references to the writings of Coleridge (whom I hope to treat later at greater length in a separate volume) probably coming next. The study of Julius Caesar as a device for the arousing and fulfilling of expectations in an audience, might fall within this class, if the reader is not led by its tone to assign it the quality of a tour de force. And I have included in an appendix some reviews that, while selected because in my opinion they clarified some aspect or other of my position, are by the nature of the case cen tered about some one formal object.
