For what it's worth, I've never cared much for Burke's writing. He always struck me as a guy overly intent on becoming a Serious Writer. That's not necessarily bad, of course, but he always seems to me to be overdoing it, overstraining at the attempt. He reminds me of a batter who's so intent on knocking one out of the park that he forgets just to let the bat meet the ball, and ends up striking out.
