E. E. Cummings (1894-1962) was a radical individualist who epitomized the modernist revolt against conventional norms, whether artistic or social. His bold experiments with syntax and form became one of the most recognizable of the twentieth century. He moved between Greenwich Village and Paris after World War I, and was a principal figure of the Lost Generation.
