We are more interested in excellent or distinctive work than the merely timely or fashionable. Quality is always in season, and often more topical and entertaining than currency or fashion admit. Thus, we aim to refer and amuse, rather than to announce and forget. We avoid spoiling surprises in reviews that recommend; other works take their chances.

[France. The King's palace.]

King of France:

                                If she be
All that is virtuous, save what thou dislik'st —
'A poor physician's daughter' — thou dislik'st
Of virtue for the name. But do not do so.
From lowest place when virtuous things proceed,
The place is dignified by th' doer's deed.
Where great additions swell's, and virtue none,
It is a dropsied honor.

William Shakespeare
All's Well That Ends Well, 2.3.117-124

This is JMF's idea.
