Product Description

Review

"E.E. Cummings is a concentrate of titanic significance."--Marianne Moore
"To my way of thinking Cummings is, within his field of personal emotion, the lyrical field, one of the inventors of our time. He puts his inventions down with an unexpected refurbishing of phrase and a filigree delicacy of hairbreadth exact statement that is a continual challenge."--John Dos Passos
"No one else has ever made avant-garde, experimental poems so attractive both to the general and the special reader; since the early twenties, Cummings has been more widely imitated and easily appreciated than any other modernist poet."--Randall Jarrell
"He has more control over language than any poet since Joyce. . . . Everybody delights in reading him."--Karl Shapiro
"E.E. Cummings is a concentrate of titanic significance, 'a positive character'; and only ingenuousness could attempt to suggest in a word the 'heroic' aspect of his painting, his poems, and his resistances. He does not make aesthetic mistakes."--Marianne Moore

Format: Paperback
e. e. cummings is one of my favorite poets, and this collection of his poems is a treat for any fan of his verse. The innovativeness of his language and the freshness of his images are continuously inspiring. It is sometimes hard to believe that most of these poems have been written well over half a century ago - they have all aged remarkably well. This is a testament to the simplicity and the permanence of the themes and ideas that e. e. cummings dealt with, and the original and inimitable way that he approached them. And if you are not already familiar with e. e. cummins' writings, this collection is one of the best places to start getting to know this great American poet.

e e cummings' work is different to any other poetry i have read. by ignoring the conventions of poetry - spacing, lineation, syntax - he created poems which are at the same time creative, enigmatic and profound. i particularly like his 'anti-war' poems, which demolish any ideas that cummings is merely a wordplayer.

I am biassed, as e e cummings is amongst my favourite poets (alongside Houseman, Yeats, Dylan Thomas, Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon, John Donne, Robert Herrick, Ogden Nash, and others).

I bought this as a gift for a friend. For myself I bought his complete poems!!
