‘ No poet, no artist of any art, has his complete meaning alone. His significance, his appreciation is the appreciation of his relation to the dead poets and artists. You cannot value him alone; you must set him, for contrast and comparison, among the dead, I mean this as a principle of aesthetic, not merely historical criticism. The necessity that he shall confirm, he shall cohere, is not one-sided; what happens when a new work of art is created is something that happens simultaneously to all the work of art which preceded it. The existing monuments form an ideal order among themselves, which is modified by the introduction of the new (the really new) work of art among them’
Tradition and the Individual Talent, T.S. Eliot (1917)
