    breaking away from convention

    cummings' (that's right,his name is NEVER capitalized...he legally changed it to all lower case) poetry is witty, sad, funny, and pushes the boundaries of acceptability. I highly recommend any and all of his poems to anyone who enjoys satire and wit.

    more from this reviewer

    Great introduction to e. e. cummings

    e. e. cummings is one of my favorite poets, and this collection of his poems is a treat for any fan of his verse. The innovativeness of his language and the freshness of his images are continuously inspiring. It is sometimes hard to believe that most of these poems have been written well over half a century ago - they have all aged remarkably well. This is a testament to the simplicity and the permanence of the themes and ideas that e. e. cummings dealt with, and the original and inimitable way that he approached them. And if you are not already familiar with e. e. cummins' writings, this collection is one of the best places to start getting to know this great American poet.

    Thomas, Somone who enjoys comedy

    I Thoroughly enjoyed this book of E. E. Cummings poems. some of his poems are fairly hard to understand, but i enjoyed them anyway. He has a great sense of humor and an understanding of life itself, and to do that you must understand death itself. My favorite poem in this book is 'Buffalow Bill'. He is a poet that stimulates the mind.

    A Wonderful Book For Your Collection

    Although I am upset that '1'a' wasn't included in this collection of great poems, the ones which were included were just as wonderful and touching to the soul. If you're new to E. E. Cummings ' Yes E.E. Cummings, not e e cummings like the previous reviewer had written because Cummings NEVER changed his name, newspapers and publishers of the time lowercased his name as a gimmick because the syntax of his poems were profound . Look it up' but yes, if youre new to E.E. Cummings, this is a wonderful book to start you off. If you're new to poetry in general, Cummings isnt a hard read, nor hard to understand. Enjoy~
