In so doing critics demand the interpretative act and structure both become pivotally conjoined, without which interconnection the exegetical intervention loses its value and creditability. Rather than accede to this practice and naturalise this strategy of reading that is in fact both a critical intervention and self-asserting ploy, I insist on thematising its signification as an economy of exegesis, following its inherent logic which is a propensity towards models and the veering away from res (the world of things) as substantive, evidential content (and thus abandoning the primary strategy of literary discourse itself).
Language narrows our perception and recollection; it focuses the communicative context. At the same time it can indicate an intellectually embedded mystification of the word’s ability to suggest an adjacency with objects and even an integration of more disparate elements. If in language reference there is involved an intuitive ― or to use Edward Pols’ term, in Radical Realism: Direct Knowing in Science and Philosophy (1992) an epiphanic leap that remains untheorisable, then, firstly formal criticism cannot resolve that by an appeal to structure since underpinning its epistemological assumptions would be an absent referent, and secondly that absence does not negate all potential relationships, it merely diminishes the certainty of verification.
Given that the inference of each term is distinct when used alone, it appears even on an initial understanding, that neither is undisturbed on any level, so a variability of content is indicated. Their unified phrasal positioning (and meaning) is affected by an interfusion. The overall phrase, it is worth stressing, manages furthermore to imply a notion of an interconnection of literary and rhetorical discourse with concepts of exchange and value that cannot be sustained in any equilibrium. The first term is subsumed into the second term, or generates a counterpoint that extends the second, but in a sense given their different apparent spheres, the one negates and ironises the other in a very specific manner.
