  Iransaga - Modernist Poetry
Modernist poetry, namely, a poetry which departs radically from the traditional school of the old masters, began to emerge only after World War II, when the deep social changes which had been developing for some time finally challenged the venerable literary tradition in a drastic fashion and eroded its foundations.
Nima Yushij (1897-1960), the father of modernist poetry, died in relative obscurity, but after World War II a number of young poets took up his cause, fighting against the shackles of literary conventions and writing free verse, sometimes with a vengeance.
Modernist poets have, no doubt, produced works of considerable freshness and beauty, more in concert with the contemporary cultural climate of Iran than traditional poetry, but the new freedom and the continuing absence of well-defined and universally accepted criteria have also led to much inept and even nonsensical writing.

Modernist poetry in English is generally considered to have emerged in the early years of the 20th century with the first appearance of the Imagist poets.
In common with many other modernists, these poets were writing in reaction to what they saw as the excesses of Victorian poetry, with its emphasis on traditional formalism and overly flowery poetic diction.
Much of her poetry is written in syllabic verse, repeating the number of syllables rather than stresses or beats, per line.

 Modernist poetry   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
Modernist poetry is a mode of writing characterised by technical innovation in the mode of versification (sometimes referred to as free verse) and by the dislocation of the 'I' of the poet.
The dislocation of the authorial presence is achieved through the application of such techniques as collage, found poetry, visual poetry, the juxtaposition of apparently unconnected materials, etc. At the same time, these techniques are used not for their own sake but to open up questions in the mind of the reader.
Modernist poetry in English is often viewed as an American phenomenon in origin, with leading exponents including Ezra Pound, Marianne Moore, William Carlos Williams, H.D., and Louis Zukofsky, but there were a number of important British modernist poets, including David Jones, Hugh MacDiarmid, Mina Loy, and Basil Bunting.

 Modernist poetry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Modernist poetry refers specifically to poetry written between 1890 and 1970 in the tradition of Modernism.
Through much of the post-renaissance, poetry in the major European languages had focused on development of large scale prosodic structure, reference and ornament, in a tradition that was seen as stretching back to the works of Dante Alighieri and Petrarch.
By the 19th century a large range of established forms and norms had been established in French, English, German, Italian, Spanish and Russian, and these norms were the standard against which new works were judged.

 Kaufman, "Sociopolitical (i.e., _Romantic_) Difficulty in Modern Poetry and Aesthetics", Romanticism and Contemporary ...
Modern poetry is difficult; that’s perhaps the most familiar characterization of those modernist and postmodernist poetries committed to thematic and—especially—formal experiment.
Poetry may be inspirational, but it’s usually not been thought to provide objective, empirically verifiable facts that can be shared or transparently communicated.
But for the Frankfurt School’s modernist extensions of romantic theory, the aesthetic is by definition the key modality for the investigation and enabling of subjective, critical human capacities to process intellectually and emotionally (and to work transformatively with) the overarching objective structural realities of modern society.

The modernists were still able, either literally or imaginatively, to seek out alternative or geographical enclaves which had not yet been colonized by the media or the leisure industry.
Are modernist writers T.S. Eliot or Ezra Pound really doing anything radically different from their societies: in 1913 in Britain 1% of the population owned two-thirds of the country's wealth.
But in Childs' account, we could actually suggest that many Modernists, such as Pound and Eliot, are actually reacting against the democratising features of modern life: the enfranchisement of the working class and of women, the rise of parliamentary democracy and shifts in education and so on.

 modernist literature
Modernist literature represents a broad plexus of concerns that are variably represented in 120 years of European writing, notably experimentation, anti-realism, individualism and intellectualism.
Everyone has their favourites, but these may be the better known poets: Wallace Stevens, E E Cummings, W H Auden, William Empson, Elizabeth Bishop, John Berryman, Sylvia Plath, James Wright, and Ted Hughes.
Good introductions are: A History of Modern Poetry (1987) by David Perkins, Modernism by Malcolm Bradbury and James McFarlane (1976/1991), A Map of Modern English Verse (1969) by John Press, Modern Poetry and the Tradition by Cleanthe Brooks (1930) and The Pound Era by Hugh Kenner (1971).

 Voicing the Distant: Shakespeare and Russian Modernist Poetry (FDU P)
Russian modernists saw the continuity of the literary process as enabling an individual writer to escape the given temporal and geographical limits.
In Russian modernist poetry, Shakespearean themes and images broke out beyond the constraints of the plot, gained a personal immediacy, and reached the level of a linguistic system capable of generating potentially endless meanings.
The semiotic character of the Shakespearean text, brought to the foreground by Russian modernists, was conductive to generic, cultural, and stylistic transpositions (from the tragic to the lyric, from the social to the personal, and from the plot to the word) taking place in Russian poetry of the period.

Literary criticism is indeed as varied as the genres it attempts to cover, and tutors often resort to aide-memoires, guidelines or tips.
Nonetheless, poetry needs to be written well, and much advice is simple commonsense.
Perhaps you should start your own circle, adopting sensible guidelines, and remembering that criticism has to be objective and incorporate both positive and negative appraisals.

However, one of the things which the Modernists consciously did was to "kill" the assumptions which populated the generation of texts which preceded them, the Victorian texts.
Instead, Modernists made their readers by making texts which had to be worked on to be understood.
In any case, Modernists indulged their own intellects -- and expected their readers to find the same joy in the play which they did.

 English Literature 2: Modernist Poetry - W B Yeats
The Modernists reject Romanticism as verbose, overly effusive and subjective, abstract and lacking exactitude.
Poetry must resemble prose, and both must accept the vocabulary of their time; not must there be any special subject-matter.
For the Modernists themselves, however, the point of using myth was to be compensate for the dissatisfying fragmentation of the modern world: to create a controlling narrative that could be mapped onto, and make sense of, the rapid social changes of modernity.’

 Modernist Poetry - tribe.net
To reduce poetry en masse to a "field of images" seems like a very tenuous move if we're after "beauty" or "spirit." You'd have to define both tautologically.
I can surely understand an emphasis on imagery, and everyone has their own preferences, but how one could sustain an interest in modernist poetry reading in such a way is beyond me.
And to equate rhyme with sonneteering seems to miss a large chunk of the history of that form from Modernist through contemporary poetics.
