I have had a copy of this book since 1973, when I was a 15 year old studying for my O Level in English Literature. Simply put it is one of the most incredible collections of poetry I have ever had the pleasure to read. Cummings was something of a surrealist in his approach, but his use of language and typography as a part of the form itself makes his love poems, in particular, light up.
Thoroughly recommended to any lover of the avant-garde.
