I ran a bibilographic search on <Counter-Statement> in the online
bibliography ( just to make sure.  The
results showed, as you suspected, that "The Status of Art," "Program," and
"Lexicon Rhetoricae" were not published prior to their appearance in CS.
You can see precisely where the others came from if you run a search on
<Counter-Statement>.  (Follow the same procedure to find out where the
essays that appear in Burke's other books first appeared.)

Subject: Counter-Statement Essays

I am trying to determine when and where the essays that comprise
Counter-Statement were (if they were) published before appearing in the
book. So far,
I've tracked down the essays that make up "The Three Adepts of...," as well
as "Psychology and Form," "The Poetic Process," "Thomas Mann and Andre
Gide," and "Applications of the Terminology." Were "The Status of Art,"
"Program," and "Lexicon Rhetoricae," written specifically for

Many Thanks,
