E.E. Cummings is a unique love, satirical, and descriptive nature poet. His
writing styles emulate those of the famous Emily Dickinson. "I carry your
heart with me" is a love poem with personification and repetition. Even
though Cummings is not your prototypical poet and refuses to use
punctuation, capitalization, or even give his poems a title, we can easily
tell that he pours his heart out when it comes to writing.

Edward Estlin also known as the great american poet, e.e.cummings broke all
the traditional writers rule. He was known for not using
capitalization,punctuation, and used improper grammer. e.e. cummings
volunteered for an ambulance corp where he later on in war was imprisioned
by the French and help hostage. This great event lead to one of his
greatest short story poem: Enormous Room which was released in 1922. He was
a realistic writer and believed nature was the moat mystical thing and that
no one would even understand the whys and the hows. He once said,"When
skies are hanged and oceans drowned/ the single secret will still be man."

This poem by E.E. Cummings is a heart break and yet lovely tone to it. It
Sounds like he had lost a loved one and is still in touch with it with the
memories and feelings he had from that event with the person. No matter
where or if he died he says "i carry your heart with me(i carry it in my
heart)".

E.E. Cummings had a fond for the love poems, descriptive nature poems and
satirical squibs. And to make him stand-out a little from the other poets,
he writes his poems without using capitalization. Just like in these poem,
"i carry your heart with me", that seems to be a story of a feeling he once
had in his life towards a woman that stole his heart and caused him to
write this poem.

In the poem, I Carry your Heart With Me we can see how E.E Cummings uses
unusual typography and spellings. Like in many of his works, he uses
run-ons and different punctuation. One of Cummings favorite type of poems
are love poems. In this poem he also uses personification because he gives
the hear and sun human qualities. For example, he says that he carries her
heart with him and whatever a sun will sing will always be her. Hearts can
not be carried around and suns can not sing.

E. E. Cummings used his writing to tell a love story that he may have once
felt with a girl. He uses all lower case letters in all of his poems. That
is a unique style of writing that most people will never see. Cummings
tells an emotional story with his writing.

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.
