This article critically examines the poetic literature. Sometimes, when we look at it a-slant or suddenly, this seems a very wonderful century. And seldom more wonderful than when the terrain of our poetry forms before us. At the moment, however, poetry is a delight for which they steal time and skip duties, a necessity like a vice rather than like a source of income. And, as is natural with such catch as catch can methods, we are conscious not so much of a given poet and his personality and oeuvre as of a crowd of poems jostling each other, flip and passionate.
