Hence it is the advent of a new perception, of an intellectualist mode, which these literatures and these architectures of vision mark out ... Paris and France become under Hugo's pen and Michelet's (and under the glance of the Tower) intelligible objects, yet without -and this is what is new -losing anything of their materiality; a new category appears, that of concrete abstraction; this, moreover, is the meaning which we can give today to the word structure: a corpus of intelligent forms."
