Jack Selzer"No one in history, I'll wager, wrote more words than Kenneth Burke. Some of them, fortunately, were the remarkable poems of his later life-playful, funny words, aphoristic and surprising; death-defying and moving words; intellectually stimulating and occasionally confounding words. Unpretentious, personal, and delightfully idiosyncratic, Late Poems is in some ways like Burke’s novel Towards a Better Life: the ironic, poignant lament of a social reformer, the verbal virtuosity of an original ‘language poet,’ a revealing window to the man and his work."
—author of Kenneth Burke in Greenwich Village: Conversing with the Moderns, 1915-1931
