e. e. cummings is by far the most unconventional poet ever to achieve world-wide recognition. The brillance and irony of his poems have captivated many readers, and his unusual experiments in form have evoked endless commentary and debate. In this volume are fifty of Mr. Cummings' most representative poems. They move, they scintillate. They tease the mind and stimulate the senses. They are works of art in the fullest sense, as profound in intent as they seem frivolous in form. Mr. Cummings' endeavor has always been highly serious. His aim has been to represent direct experience by the very form of his work, as well as by the meaning of his words. It is a sort of super-verbalism, at once shocking, impertinent and lyrical, yet concealing in its depths the beauty, freshness, and vitality that have always been the hallmarks of great poetry.
