Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I do not like this book. I like both the poet and the painter; however, the presentation is unbearable. The poem is reproduced in an awful curly font, with peculiar italicising of certain words, culminating in the feeling felt when reading a childrens book. I seriously feel that the publishers have done a great injustice to the poem, as, simply, it is not presented in the way designated by the poet.
In fairness, though, the paintings do look pretty good -- the colouring is vibrant, and the pictures sizable -- even if their connection to the poetry was tenous at best. They have basically taken a random selection of Chagall's paintings, and paired them off unfathomably with certain lines of Cummings' poem.
Looking through this book was not a pleasant experience. And it's a shame too, because the idea of this book is fantastic, and a lot more could have been done. If they had merely included a commentary on each page, or even contrasted the works more professionally, then the book could have been ten times better. Even some short bios, or some quotes would have made the book marginally more interesting.
If you like Cummings, avoid this book. If you like Chagall, consider warily.

It's a book filled with Chagall's thought provoking art and E.E. Cumming's whimsical and witty poetry. They are the perfect match for such a book. And if you have never read Cumming's "May I Feel Said He," you'll fall in love with its surprising and funny subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! 24 Sept. 2002
By Jessica Edstrom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is one of the most beautiful combinations of poetry and art. The poem is really quite beautiful. The art is inspirational. I don't knwo that I'd give it to a couple for their wedding though, cause the poem is about a man who is cheating on his wife....So don't take the advice of the other reviewer, the couple might look at you funny!

5.0 out of 5 stars a beautiful marriage of words and Chagall 24 Nov. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you are a Chagall or e.e. cummings lover, this book is not to be missed. It is an absolute treasure and such a beautiful marriage of words and art! The images perfectly complement the text. Highly recommended, even as an introduction to either of these two artists.

5.0 out of 5 stars a charming how-to for the romantic at heart 18 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A terrific combination of art appreciation classes and literature for reading outdoors--took me back some 35 years to college days in its content, and then back up to the present in its pervasive wisdom. A joy for the ear and eye, just like its message--lovemaking is for lots of ages and stages and a delight to the senses. Should be on every bookstore's front tables.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful taste of both artists 21 Mar. 2009
By Wallace R. Wenn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Sometimes when you combine two spices, the result isn't too wonderful. But that's not the case here. Putting these two artists together was a wonderful inspiration. This is a keeper!
