This chapter summarizes the discussions in the preceding chapters and presents some concluding thoughts. It argues that the strongest poetry that this generation has produced has not precluded the possibility of more finished arrangements. Possibility is the other side of doubt. Holding what is lacked in question, in play, keeps the thing missed from being lost. The tropes that liken are the means for exploring similitude. They are also the preliminaries for greater certainty, maybe, on occasion, even consensus, however problematical that kind of certainty remains, and probably ought to remain.
