Being aware of the partialness
of a human view, relativism "accepts completion and correction and even conflict from and with others who stand in the same relation to the Absolute.
The lyricism Maulpoix has in mind, then, is always a "critical lyricism"; if it takes care of a speaking of (the) language (of the world), it does so with that finest of equilibriums balancing passion and question, consent and contestation (as Bonnefoy would say), affirmation and a "limping" partialness
As such, it brings about partial shapes of reality with all the problematic aspects of partialness
This compares with a more recent tendency to emphasize the disruptiveness of contrasts in the style, the uncertainties and partialness
of resolution, and the superiority of rhetoric over structure in determining meaning.
