I was just reading an article by Frederick Turner, "Beginnings, Middles, and Ends in Poetry", which appeared in the Spring 2016 issue of Think: A Journal of Poetry, Criticism, and Reviews.
I think Turner's very interesting at times as a critic
"The postmodern movement, with its objections to what it calls 'essentialism,' its hostility to any kind of hierarchy or priority... and its rejection of the objective rality of nature, subtracted even more of the ways that we make meaningful sequences."
Unfortunately for postmodernism, fandom
abhors the merely random.
