Was March 25, 1909 the Day Modern Poetry was Born?

"Their names have largely been forgotten over time -- TE Hulme, FS Flint, Edward Storer -- but 100 years ago today, a young and edgy group of bohemians met together for the first time and changed the face of poetry for good. Enthusiasts are celebrating 25 March as one of our most significant literary anniversaries, though one that most people know nothing about."
