This sounds like Ed Dorn, "Gunslinger" in particular,
except that Dorn [strongly] disliked the idea of
absolute meaning, so he left the sussing out of the
references to the reader. If you can't figure it out,
then no literary soup for you. A high culture-nerd
quotient, but fun if you get into that sort of thing.
[I, of course, just made four such references in this
paragraph. One's a gimme, but try and figure out the
other three.]
