I wouldn't blame you there, Richard. I didn't make my point clear.A modern poem (TWL, for instance) presumes to present an objectivereality, and projects an absolutist and traditionalist center to order it.A postmodern poem, on the other hand, constructs a subjectivepicture of reality and provides a subjectivecenter to order it.Regards,CR
