Off the top of my head---and I can look up specific pages later---Burke talks
about the cathartic value of invective in the Coriolanus essay (title:
something about the joys of "faction"---and I think the invective part is in a
footnote) and also, I do believe, somewhere in PLF.
Burke treats such invective as an attenuated form of victimage.
I'll try to get back to you later on that matter.
