E. E. Cummings Reads: A Poetry Collection

E. E. Cummings Reads: A Poetry Collection Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In asking "Who, as a writer, am I?" e.e. Cummings's affirmation of life resolved into serenity as he described himself as someone "whose only happiness is to transcend himself, whose every agony is to grow." This collection of Cummings reading his own poetry embodies this in an unforgettable way.

While perhaps best remembered for his use of such visual devices as typography and punctuation, the sheer sound of Cummings's work imparts a greater, deeper understanding of how its cadences reveal its profound meaning. This rich sampling of his poems and lectures is rendered in what the great Robert Graves called Cummings "own beautifully modulated voice."

Synopsis:

One of the most beloved poets of all time reads from his books of poetry and prose. This edition, released posthumously, includes several pieces that have been long out-of-print.
