Life affirming stuff,
This review is from: Selected Poems 1923-1958 (Paperback)
Read these on snatched breaks from a little light-deprived office so all the more luminous for the context. It's a simplistic philosophy Cummings has (flowers, pretty girls and life= good, machines, academia and death = bad) but none the worse for it. All that stumbling syntax is worth it I promise- it makes everything fresh somehow. We live in a world in which we must battle against cynicism, apathy and horrible fluorescent lighting: arm yourself with some Cummings I say.
