Yet, there is also a substantial performative element. In ‘On living to one’s self’, Hazlitt implicitly defines himself as a failed actor, and there is a sense in which his literary performances are somehow secondary, screened by print. Yet, in thinking of himself as an actor, he offers up a way of reconceptualizing literary creativity as involving the transmission, expression or embodiment of words, not (just) their origination. An alternative to the self-critical evaluation offered by Hazlitt might be to see him as a talented actor, with an immensely wide-ranging repertoire.

In this sense, writing well, which involves writing imaginatively, authorizes his judgements. Hazlitt’s metaphorical style can also be seen as an act of mediation, which contains a dangerously singular poetry in prose and provides it with the public it lacks. As Wellek writes (1955: 188–216; 197–8), Hazlitt’s criticism both evokes the work and translates it into new terms. Hazlitt’s mediation, the prose poem, is, then, a recreation which conveys the impression of the original and creates something new, which makes him a co-author.
