Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This centennial edition of e.e. cummings's complete poems, published in celebration of his birth on October 14, 1894, contains all of the poems published by the poet in his lifetime, including thirty-six poems that were first collected in the 1991 edition and 164 unpublished poems issued in 1983 under the title Etcetera.

Synopsis:

For this edition of cummings's work, George Firmage referred to the poet's manuscripts to ensure the accuracy of the transcriptions. This book includes the poems from volumes published during cummings's lifetime and the hitherto uncollected poems, as well as the unpublished poems issued in 1983.

Synopsis:

This centennial edition of E. E. Cumming's , 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.

Synopsis:

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 poet of the middle-twentieth-century."

About the Author

Kate B., July 18, 2007 (view all comments by Kate B.)
His poems are an odd jump where you have to mouth the words and see how he has structured the lines to understand anything. And even after all of this, it's still difficult to explain what is going on, but you know what the poem is about even if you can never tell anyone exactly how you know. You see the pictures he has made. Oh, terrible man, because he disconnects us from lucid thought and logical patterns. Hooray for e.e. cummings!
