This list is virtually meaningless, and could equally be applied in a vague way to poetry of any age. There is no manifesto, and if there were it would be manifestly abhorred, as the route which poetry takes is dictated by the individual poet's instinct and not by any arbiter imposing his desirable state of affairs onto weak-willed and malleable writers.
