    I do not think a living, contemporary poet can vie easily or successfully with a classical poet who is no more and has had his poems known and read world-over for several hundred years.However, I am of opinion that number of poems also matter apart from the quality.Otherwise, a poet with a few poems gets ranked better than one with a colossal work.I think the present method followed is not a very ideal one.
