"i can’t help but dream about a kind of criticism that would try not to judge but to bring an oeuvre, a book, a sentence, an idea to life; it would fight fires, watch grass grow, listen to the wind, and catch the sea foam in the breeze and scatter it. it would multiply not judgements but signs of existence; it would summon them, drag them from their sleep. perhaps it would invent them sometimes — all the better. all the better. criticism that hands down sentences sends me to sleep; i’d like a criticism of scintillating leaps of the imagination. it would not be sovereign or dressed in red. it would bear the lightning of possible storms." [michel foucault, the masked philosopher, 1980]
