In and in other works of art the historian finds his most reliable evidence about the emotions of antiquity--and the anthropologist, about those of contemporary primitivism. As a poetic practice allusiveness would appear to be in some recent poems an extreme corollary of the romantic intentionalist assumption, and as a critical issue it challenges and brings to light in a special way the basic premise of intentionalism. For works of and historical works, using intentional fallacy as a basis for literary criticism may provide some new insights. His position on developments in the arts is probably best described as open-minded moderation. This is particularly powerful because often the emotions that the fallacy has elicited are genuine, but the material or information being used to elicit the reaction is manipulated or skewed. If Eliot and other contemporary poets have any characteristic fault, it may be in planning too much.
Besides, they assumed that the level of technology changes over time. But it follows that his former concrete intention was not his intention. External is private or idiosyncratic; consists of revelations of journals and letters, about why the poet wrote. Close reading is what is required of a critic, not biographical information about the author, a rundown of the state of society at the time the work was written, data about the psychology of creation, predictions about the effects of the work on society, and certainly not a piece of autobiography detailing the critic's own personal response to the work. One demands that it work.

The concept is credited with first being introduced by William K. Certainly it need not be with a derogatory purpose that one points out personal studies, as distinct from poetic studies, in the realm of literary scholarship.

Beardsley is best known for his work in aesthetics—and this article will deal exclusively with his work in that area—but he was an extremely intellectually curious man, and published articles in a number of areas, including the philosophy of history, action theory, and the history of modern philosophy. This is an effective restatement of a position that the poem is an autonomous verbal structure which has its end in itself, which has no purpose beyond its own existence as an aesthetic object. Since we always read to better understand ourselves and the world, we look at art to see how it relates to our lives.

Critical statements are of three kinds, Beardsley thinks: descriptive, interpretative, and evaluative. They believe that a work of literature or text has ontology of its own.
