Artistically, yes. Commercially, no. As with all things in British life at the moment, I think there is far too much concentration (by publishers and the media) on a small number of often not very good poets. Our school curriculum favours poor poets with 'social messages'. Plain fare poetry often gets rewarded by plain fare judges. I'm a big admirer of 'elliptical / associative' poetry from the US, though it has been suggested that this strain of poetry had peaked.
