at first....i thought he disliked picasso...but...the J.T. Parreira got it
right.....his writing..and picassos painting is the same...everything is
like...out of place......and u can also note in the end...when he
says..."bodies lopped of every prettiness" you might think its bad....but
then..he ends saying..."you hew form truly"...so..he...admires
Picasso...for..remaining "true" to things

no, ee cummings was an ardent picasso fan; he was a mostly cubist artist
and poet, so there's no reason to think that he didn't admire the father of
cubism (with respect to braque.) he was also heavily influenced by gertrude
stein, who compiled a veritable cubist gallery complete with picasso
originals. the "ego" is likely a freud reference.

Wait a minute, i don't think ee cummings is lauding Picasso, look at the
5th stanza, he speaks of Picasso's large ego, read the poem again, i don't
think he likes Picasso

Este poema Picasso ele-mesmo. Palavras fora do lugar,na sintaxe, como os
olhos, os narizes, os seios, das figuras de Picasso. O poeta e.e.cummings,
escreveu Picasso.

Is or is not "Things" capitalized in the first line?

Will someone please find a physical book of his and confirm?

Thank you.

Please post answer here, as from internet site to internet site the way
this poem has been typed up is different, depending on the source.

a tribute to his fellow surrealist picasso. so many adjectives run together
to create a very real idea of what picasso has created. and picasso was not
an amiable man, o no. i think cummings realized this. but picasso certainly
was a brilliant artist just as cummings
