AnOther E. E. Cummings

Cummings was a pioneer in sound and concrete poetry He worked with the traditional form of the sonnet until he made it all his own through linguistic and typographic inventions that have never been properly recognized His prose is no less experimental he wrote memoirs, essays, and fiction that are constantly provocative and often radically experimental.

    About the Author

    E.E. Cummings John Rocco

    Edward Estlin Cummings was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on October 14, 1894 He began writing poems as early as 1904 and studied Latin and Greek at the Cambridge Latin High School.He received his BA in 1915 and his MA in 1916, both from Harvard University His studies there introduced him to the poetry of avant garde writers, such as Gertrude Stein and Ezra Pound.In 1917, Cummings published an early selection of poems in the anthology Eight Harvard Poets The same year, Cummings left the United States for France as a volunteer ambulance driver in World War I Five months after his assignment, however, he and a friend were interned in a prison camp by the French authorities on suspicion of espionage an experience recounted in his novel, The Enormous Room for his outspoken anti war convictions.After the war, he settled into a life divided between houses in rural Connecticut and Greenwich Village, with frequent visits to Paris He also traveled throughout Europe, meeting poets and artists, including Pablo Picasso, whose work he particularly admired.In 1920, The Dial published seven poems by Cummings, including Buffalo Bill s Serving as Cummings debut to a wider American audience, these experiments foreshadowed the synthetic cubist strategy Cummings would explore in the next few years.In his work, Cummings experimented radically with form, punctuation, spelling, and syntax, abandoning traditional techniques and structures to create a new, highly idiosyncratic means of poetic expression Later in his career, he was often criticized for settling into his signature style and not pressing his work toward further evolution Nevertheless, he attained great popularity, especially among young readers, for the simplicity of his language, his playful mode and his attention to subjects such as war and sex.The poet and critic Randall Jarrell once noted that Cummings is one of the most individual poets who ever lived and, though it sometimes seems so, it is not just his vices and exaggerations, the defects of his qualities, that make a writer popular But, primarily, Mr Cummings s poems are loved because they are full of sentimentally, of sex, of or less improper jokes, of elementary lyric insistence During his lifetime, Cummings received a number of honors, including an Academy of American Poets Fellowship, two Guggenheim Fellowships, the Charles Eliot Norton Professorship at Harvard, the Bollingen Prize in Poetry in 1958, and a Ford Foundation grant.At the time of his death, September 3, 1962, he was the second most widely read poet in the United States, after Robert Frost He is buried in Forest Hills Cemetery in Boston, Massachusettsurce poets poetsorg poet e

      I'm not going to review all of the e.e. cummings collections that I own (there are way too many as I have this thing about collecting them). What I will say is that cummings has this totally selfish/creative/lovely/beautiful/erotic way of writing that just gets me every time. There is rarely a poem of his that I've read that I don't like. He's modern and writes very much that way, and I love his playful use of punctuality and grammar as a means of conveying his emotions. If you've never read cum [...]

      I have often stated that my favourite of Cummings's poems are the poems that reflect the poet's experimental leanings. AnOther E.E. Cummings is composed entirely of poems that illustrate the poet's multifaceted approach to experimental poetry, including "deviant traditional verse", "language experiments", "visual poetry and sound poetry", "texts set to music", "condensed prose", "elliptical narratives", "film scenarios", and more. The result is by far the best selection of Cummings's writing tha [...]

      What I love about ee cummings is that heisdiff:errrrent. He doesn't pay attention to capitilization, punctuation, or grammar rules. He strings words together beautifully and stirs up emotions you never knew you had. ee cummings seriously makes me smile. His poetry and prose is like a decoding a secret language, and you have to analyze every line. You can't skim his work so maybe that's the point, maybe he wants you to feel his words, not to read them. Well, ee, it works for me.

      I like his poetry the best, but this book gives a taste of each of his different kind of poems, his prose, translations, memoir, etc.

      Cummings cambio mi modo de concebir la poesía y me ha inspirado a probar nuevas formas y a salirme de los tradicionalismos. Creo que es una lectura que deberíamos hacer todos. Cummings changed my way of thinking about poetry and has inspired me to get out and try new things. I think everyone should read it.

      A great and unique collection with pieces that I haven't seen anywhere else. It highlights a lot of his recondite works that deviate far outside the traditional standards fitting of his contemporaries (indeed even to that of today's modern poets) - some seriously strange/chaotic structures even for Cummings. Loved the section on his condensed prose and elliptical narratives.

      I really appreciate that the editors included such a wide-range of Cummings' writing (including translations, book chapters, prose, etc.) I enjoyed his poetry and feel like I know him better as a whole-artist for the wide range introduced in the book.

      cummings just makes me happy. even if it is sad happy. and he makes me want to be the kind of person who notices ants and red specks in the carpet. and who buys flowers for herself just because they look nice in kitchenlight.

      This is such a cool, unique, collection of the lesser known cummings poems. The pages of analysis and biography are very useful and well-written, definitely worth the read for anyone with interest in cummings' life and work.

      I appreciate what Cummings did with language, but I can't see myself going back to these over and over like I do with his "since feeling is first". Nothing really spoke to the heart of me, just to aesthetic pleasure, so it's not a 5 star book for me.
