love it so much...

in this poem, ee cummings is showing the way that legalistic "christians"
kill tbe beauty in life and in effect kill Christ himself: he says that
christ is dead, which is a contradiction of the truth- christ rose again.
The reason being is that the "ladies of cambridge" gossip and suck joy from
life, never seeing the moon in the "sky lavender and cornerless." this
represents the freedom and joy of life that is not stagnant with rules and
churches. cummings is not making any statements against christianity but
rather against the way people get sunk into ruts where they cannot see

This poem represents many countries and the people in the countries. I
believe that it speaks the truth about our society today. We always gossip
and try to out do each other with material items that we own and buy

This poem is not merely an attack on upper class women in Cambridge but is
a more widespread accusation of all upper class white society in his time.
Cummings shows through several ironical twists that the Cambridge ladies
have lost the broader points of religion and charity. Although they are
supposedly good Protestant women, they do not even consider who their self
proclaimed charitable acts are benefiting but rather take pleasure that it
will increase their social status. This complimented by their profound
interest in social gossip defines the idea that in their social arena,
religion is no longer a faith intensive practice but simply a social
requirement with not many deep obligations. There are many interpretations
and examples in this poem and one should not limit their view to the
Cambridge ladies but should look at white society, aristocratic circles and
the modernization of religion throughout the whole of society.
