"If language is our instrument of thought, as it is certainly our instrument of expression, then we are always in the position of trying to think about language in language."
We talk about language in language. We think about language in language. We write about language in language. There really is no escape to one's language. And we've seen that the formalists and the intertextual critics explore the idea of what language really means in texts. I think that is why I have agreed with formalists and intertexual critics the most so far because I never want to escape from language as language. I think the words on the page are the most important parts of a work.
