In this poem by E.E Cummings, you can see that this is based upon his past
lovers and how they truly matter to him. Love poems, satirical squibs, and
descriptive nature poems would always be his favoured forms. In this idea
it would be love poem. You can also see that one of his writing techniques
is that he never uses capitalization. This is a very dejected poem written
by Cummings.

In this poem by E.E. Cummings you can see how he pours his heart out into
the poem. He shows a lot of emotion about one of his past lovers and they
meant everything to him. If you also look closely you will see that he does
not use any capital letters or punctuation which is a very common trend for
him.

This poem by E.e. Cummings is a beatiful love poem. We can see he uses the
technique where he doesn't use any punction or periods to end the poem.
This could symbolize that a love like that should never end or that the
love he felt for someone never ended. This poem is something you would
recite at a special occassion with a very special person in your life.
Cummings expected his marriage to last forever but it didn't, which is
probably the reason he writes love peoms; to express what he feels.

E.E. Cummings was a under recognized poet due to his distinctive style. It
is obvious that he does not use any capitilization in his poems and that he
created no set titles, instead merely using the first few words like
another great American poet, Emily Dickinson. This type of poem was easily
Cummings' favorite. This is a love poem, that can be related to his first
marriage. Like the lover in the poem, Cummings' wife left him, but he still
loves her with all his heart.

In this poem we really get to see how cummings never really uses
capitalization or punctuation. We also get to see him use one of his more
preffered forms of poems; the love poem. Also we get to see his writing
technique and how amazing it is. One of the techniques that he uses in this
poem is that of personification. We see him using personification when he
says that the sun can sing. He doesnt literally mean this for it is
personification which is giving non human things life like characteristics.
But he uses this to liven up his poem and get his point across very
nicely!!

E.e. cummings was a very distinct poet of the twentieth century with very
radical grammar and word choice. In "i carry your heart with me", cummings
pours his entire soul out on paper and displays his deepest feelings in the
parenthesis. This poem does not reflect sadness or divorce, but it reflects
love and passion. I could imagine someone reciting this at a wedding,
rather than a funeral because of the tone of this magnificent poem and how
true it appears to be. E.e. cummings can say so much in so little words,
and that is what makes him distinct in his works.

E.E. Cummings is a known author for works of various love poems, satirical
squibs, and descriptive nature poems. In i carry your heart with me which
am a love poem, in which Cummings was noted for as a favorite type of a
work to create. Cummings is also a known author for not using any type of
capitalization in his titles or within the actual context of his poems. The
poem has a type of alliteration with the repetition of the first line of
each paragraph. Alliteration is known as the repetition of the initial
sounds in two or more neighboring words or syllables. The alliteration also
causes the poem to have a basic rhythm and tone that holds a constant
tempo. This tempo helps the poem be able to be recited with a free flowing
context.

Cummings has a very unique writing style which consists of no capitals in
his poems. Cummings was a man who loved to write about love and express his
feelings. This poem is about someone being seperated from someone they
loved very much. I carry your heart with me is symbolic of someone with a
very heavy and lonley heart. When he talks about the sun and the moon he
indicates his love goes above and beyond the earth. When he writes about
the bud of the bud and the root of the root he is showing how deep and long
his realtionship was. When Cummings refers to the stars apart he is saying
that he is seperated from the one he loves. This is a very sad poem about
being seperated from the one he loves.
