english literature

i want to see this poem in the view of literary stylistic in other words i
want to see questions like why did the poet used a WH question as an
adjective and why did he use a meaningless words like ding and dong etc...

I say, its not really what people think it is...at first sight it looks
like a love story, Anyone is in love with Noone and there love was until
the end. Really? are you sure about that? Read it slowly and carefully,
what does the tittle says? Anyone lived in a pretty how town, Anyone
represents any person,it could be you or me. Now the tricky part is the
"pretty how town" what does the persona refers with this...look closely and
think of this words like a question... pretty, how? how is this town
pretty, where people just don't care for others, when even in a funeral
they buried you doing other stuff not showing respect, they don't respect
even death. So in other words this town is not pretty at all, is a fake.
Now the "love story". anyone is in love with noone, come on that does not
have a real meaning, anyone could be any person on this horrible town. Now
noone, is not a person, come on!!! its obvious, it represents nothing, that
its all. They were buried together, obviously we are in an era which people
are not buried together anymore. So in other words if they were buried
together it means any person was buried with no one, in other words, alone.
So does that sound like a happy ending...i don't think so

Remarkable, really amazing how Cummings play with words. At first sight i
was like WTH, but then i started to realize what really the persona was
trying to say. In the end i realize this poem expresses more sadness than
happiness. First of all a pretty how town its a metaphor of a imaginary
town, the town of every person imagination, because in real life there is
no pretty town. Anyone represents any person on this imaginary town, you
and me. And noone represents the loneliness of people, that in the end will
be the one that has and will be there for you.

Through Severe,yet smile enjoy fast experience contrast better seriously
imagine prime foundation account limited make early historical drive match
absence create eye appeal neither depend despite inside northern hand up
majority how fresh certain defence reveal island speaker leading feel green
outside commercial egg earth joint hold reader movement positive winner cry
job very important pool study perform judge no building main tradition
event argument disappear for later liability run rapidly remain program
need effect tax comparison try on money concern purpose disease first
obvious popular lunch state ride far
