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 really like EE Cummings, the only reason im not giving this book a 5 out of 5 its because my favourite poem is not on it! (I carry your heart)

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!!

A wonderful collection of his poems, in good condition and quickly despatched. A lovely addition to my library and a great help with my Open University English studies.
