Levin identifies the emergence of a cultured precept in Conrad’s novels and theorizes that precept during the thought of ‘the in a different way present,’ which Levin defines as that which provokes wish and perpetuates it by means of barring its appeasement.

The provinces themselves were further to be divided into dioceses presided over by bishops who were often members of the aristocracy and who, moreover, derived considerable wealth and power from their ecclesiastical positions. From the earliest days, ecclesi­ astical and secular power often went hand in hand: many monasteries were founded and presided over by wealthy noblemen (and occasionally ­noblewomen) and those men who attained the rank of bishop enjoyed ­significant ­economic benefits. The same period that witnessed the establishment of Gregory’s episcopal system also witnessed the growth of the monastic system.

Anglo-Saxon poets necessarily engage their tradition’s oral poetics, but for the most part they do so privately and non-performatively. This is especially true for Anglo-Saxon prose writers, whose practices very closely mirror those that continue to prevail today and whose texts show as high a degree of intertextuality as do modern ones. For Anglo-Saxon poets, who also composed pen-in-hand, the situation is similar but somewhat different because in order to articulate poetry in Anglo-Saxon England, poets had to engage the specialized expressive economy that is medieval English oral poetics.
