"Like the bricoleur, Eliot extracts certain elements (generally sentences or lines) from organized wholes of various nature, and chooses precisely those elements which are capable of performing a new fuction, more or less distanced from the original, in the new structure. [...] The 'fragment' has become a function: what is striking is no longer that it is dislocated and mangled, but that it possesses a precise meaning and role, and that it contributes effectively towards the composition of a new organized whole."
— Franco Moretti, Signs Taken for Wonders (info)
