Do you think that the poetry market is dead? I mean for new poets?


The population of poetry readers are dwindling. Most people only opt for poetry books if written by a famous poet. Most publishing houses will not publish your poetry unless you're a big name. Their reason is purely business, they cannot make it sell! What do you think the reason is? Is the standard of poetry going down? Are the good old days (from the Classical to the Romantic to the Elliot'ian) gone?
