There are yet no literary theorists or theoreticians, only critics, for a theory demands, through elucidatory language, two things: premise and methodology, of which the critics retain neither; they speak without right and follow no example.

A true literary theorist must reconcile with those who study the mind, revealing to them not only its limits but its greatest strides, and with their own selves, deciding what it means to utter anything at all.
