Book Description
This centennial edition of E. E. Cumming's Complete Poems, published in celebration of his birth on October 14, 1894, contains all of the poems published or designated for publication by the poet in his lifetime.

At the time of his death in 1962, E. E. Cummings was, next to Robert Frost, the most widely read poet in America. Combining Thoreau's controlled belligerence with the brash abandon of an uninhibited bohemian, Cummings, together with Pound, Eliot, and William Carlos Williams, helped bring about the twentieth-century revolution in literary expression. He is recognized on the one hand as the author of some of the most beautiful lyric poems written in the English language, and on the other as one of the most inventive American poets of his time—in the worlds of Richard Kostelanetz, "the major American...

From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. In this astonishing picture book about sensual love, Myers (Black Cat) combines evocative photographs of people and paintings to create collages that match the startling imagery in cummings's poems. Focusing primarily on the kind of breathless love for which "feeling is first," and a lover can render "death and forever with each breathing," the intense poems are made even more powerful by Myers's brilliant artwork. Each illustration translates the emotions behind cummings's quicksilver metaphors into unforgettable visual imagery. A description of the separation of lovers that "whittles life to eternity/ —after which our separating selves become museums/ filled with skillfully stuffed memories" takes visual form with an arresting image of a person's bare back and shoulders covered with...

Book Description
A rambunctious modern novel by the twentieth century's most inventive poet.

Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1894, Edward Estlin Cummings rebelled against the prevailing values of his Harvard and Unitarianism-- steeped milieu. His relentless search for personal freedom led him to Greenwich Village in early 1917, where he established himself as a Modernist, composing his sui generis poems and abstract paintings. Later that year, he impulsively joined the war, serving in a Red Cross ambulance unit on the Western Front. His free-spirited, combative ways, however, soon got him tagged as a possible enemy of La Patrie, and he was summarily tossed into a French concentration camp at La Ferte-Mace in Normandy.

Unexpectedly, under the vilest conditions, Cummings found fulfillment of his...

Book Description
One of the most important and popular American poets of the 20th century, E. E. Cummings is best known for his brilliant and innovative verse and its distinctive lack of uppercase letters and conventional grammar. He was also a Cubist painter and a World War I veteran. At the age of 23, he abandoned his artistic pursuits for voluntary service as an ambulance driver in France. His military career culminated in a comedy of errors leading to his arrest and imprisonment for treason, as he memorably recounts in The Enormous Room. Cummings transforms a tale of unjust incarceration into a high-energy romp and a celebration of the indomitable human spirit that ranks with the best of its contemporaries, including the works of Hemingway and Dos Passos. This edition restores a significant amount of material deleted from...

From Publishers Weekly
This nimble biography of the self-proclaimed " 'small eye poet,'" who united the avant-garde with tradition in his creations, works best as the story of a man in lifelong agitation about his desires and the demands of his real life. Born in Cambridge, Mass., to an established family, his father a Harvard instructor, Edward Estlin Cummings (1894–1962) came to reject his father's piety but was consumed by the guilt his upright upbringing engendered, a condition that affected his art and his interactions with women throughout his life. Cummings's student years at Harvard and his WWI involvement are covered at length, with particular attention to the publication of his first prose work, The Enormous Room, about being incarcerated in a French prison camp. Biographer Sawyer-Lauçanno (An Invisible...

About the Author
e.e. cummings (1894-1962) remains one of America's most popular poets. Listeners are enchanted by his witty originality and technical virtuosity, but his gifts were always in serve to his desire to portray the tumultuous upheavals of ordinary life, the sensuous appeals of love, and the limits of rational thought. His quickening lyrical impulse was matched by an exuberant playfulness--language sent spinning against its own gravity--that drew attention to the vitality of the spontaneous individual. He could...

From Library Journal
When Caedmon originally produced these recordings, in the 1950s, they were on vinyl. Remastering them for cassette brings with it the question of how attentive potential listeners are going to be. And for Cummings and Pound, it's important that people listen closely. Cummings's voice is melodic, but those unfamiliar with his poems on the page will miss much of the subtle play with words that has become his trademark. Pound is, arguably, the finest poet here, but even his narrative portraits are speckled with foreign phrases, and there aren't clear demarcations between poems, further confusing the listener. It's therefore not surprising that this package contains only one cassette. Sandburg, who considered himself a populist poet, addressing the people much as an orator would, is actually better heard...
