ABSTRACT
This essay presents the argument that samples from public discourse during the period 1961-1989 reveal several different symbolic uses of the Berlin Wall. Not only are these differences interesting from the point of view of rhetorical theory, they may reflect something of the never-completed struggle between the U.S.A. and the Soviet Union, between the cultures these nations have made, and between the nations these cultures have made.
