From "Paradise & method"

By Bruce Andrews.

We hear occasionally about "the death of meaning" within society, not just within certain schools of poetry. Meaning clearly didn't die. But it's possible that instead of remaining as a content that's relatively freely and easily appropriated, it's become the limits of method within a social order, that it's relocated itself within certain fixed modes, and that these need to be confronted with a more social or totalizing perspective: one that recognizes the point of those fixed modes, those fixed blocs, as something that is public.
