Summary/Abstract: Part from a book in progress, the present paper aims at clarifying the notion of modern poetry, by making use of the concepts of Eleatism and Heraclitism, analyzed in Western culture by Anton Dumitriu, and applied, under the names of Classical and Romantic, to the study of literature, by G. Călinescu. Furthermore, the notion of crisis, fundamental to the understanding of the modern age, is examined through a series of examples, with the aim of getting a better approximation of the concept of modern poetry.
