Very often, critics and literary education face the discomfort of having to deal instrumentally and subserviently with a creative genre of writing which does not allow external appropriation. Believing to apprehend it, while they actually fill a inapprehensible gap that insists in remaining empty, criticism and literary education frequently end up losing what is fundamental to their object, literature. On the other hand, the main feature of philosophical and poetic criticism is the conscience of not being instrumental, demonstrative or the mere carrier of a previous and external work of art. Among others, Baudelaire and Deleuze are good examples of the latters.
