In the age of Multi-media, the status of poetry seems to lessen. How so contemporary Thai poets view their own status and their works? In a time when poetry is not the dominant genre in literary circles, poets without patronage can hardly survive in the material world, yet they are brave enough to declare their port's manifestoes. The status of poetry is still divine and eternal, beyond history and time, yet it comes down to earth to serve social needs in creating a better society and world. It is interesting that by applying the theory of intertextuality to the criticism of contemporary Thai poetry, one can observe the multiple dimensions of intertextuality and the intertextual networks.
