    agree on the poets represented on the wooden table

    Hello
    Does "agree on the poets represented on the wooden table" implies that "everyone may not agree that poetry of Lewis Carroll is too whimsical and T. S. Eliot’s poetry is too opaque"?
    Did I understand it correctly?

    “No!” Sunny said angrily, and bared her teeth as Fiona stepped through the porthole and stood beside Count Olaf on the wooden table. Her boot brushed against the poetry books Violet and Klaus had taken from the sideboard, including books by Lewis Carroll and T. S. Eliot. There are some who say that the poetry of Lewis Carroll is too whimsical, a word which here means “full of comic nonsense,” and other people complain that T. S. Eliot’s poetry is too opaque, which refers to something that is unnecessarily complicated. But while everyone may not agree on the poets represented on the wooden table, every noble reader in the world agrees that the poet represented on Fiona’s uniform was a writer of limited skill, who wrote awkward, tedious poetry on hopelessly sentimental topics.

    Yes, I think you've got it right.
