ı am an english literature student and ı can hardly understand
what he means in his poems because he uses a different style in ihs poems.
when ı first read one of his poems ı thougt that Cummings doesnt
know English because he he didnt obey the grammatical rules and use
grammatical rules in a different style.

I thought it was good. I have to write a paper on him in English class but
the way he writes really makes you think about what he's trying to say.

thinking of anyone, noone, everyone, and someone as individuals helps to
clarify the poem, but the characteristics of all of these "individuals"
apply to every person. all people at some point in their lives feel that,
like anyone, they do not belong. to such "anyones" the rest of the world
is just conforming "someones" and "everyones." such "someones" marry the
people who mean the world to them, their "everyones," but to all others,
that "everyone" is really a "noone." Whew! pretty explicit, huh? that is
the beauty of ee cummings.
