Why literature is not data, and the significance of this

Many thanks to cj for sending through the link to this wonderful piece on the theme of literature not being data.

It's the kind of piece which, during times preceding the neoliberally rationalised university that has quickly evolved to the form today's algorithmic university, might have provided the catalyst for a semester-long class; a class in which participants, reading slowly, carefully, and with an historical imagination, could have pursued some heady themes in the kind of depth required by minds in the process of being educated.

I miss those times, more and more.
