Scott Newstok's compilation of the work on Shakespeare of Kenneth Burke (1897-1993) covers nearly sixty years in the life of an influential "maverick American intellectual" (xvii). The earliest piece, "Psychology and Form", on Hamlet, was first published in 1925 in The Dial, which reflects Burke's descent from the U.S. tradition of Emerson. Burke was editor of The Dial for a time in 1923, and was the last recipient of The Dial award in 1928. The journal closed in 1929.
