Product description


"'Cummings' complex story is told openly and readably in this fine biography' Scotland on Sunday 'CSL has benefitted enormously from access to previously unpublished sources and tells probably everything you'll ever want to know about his subject, and his book is a must for anyone interested in the generation of writers to which Cummings belonged' Literary Review 'Sawyer-Laucanno... writing with a poet's eye, urged not just that [Cumming's poems] were once exciting, but that they can still be used, if intensely and seriously, to write experience afresh. That, he will convince you, is the true business of poetry, and Cummings is a true poet' Sunday Telegraph"

About the Author
