Overview



This edition includes a modern introduction and a list of suggested further reading.
 In the autumn of 1917, zealous French police arrested two American ambulance corpsmen on suspicion of spying. One of the men was Edward Estlin Cummings, a young Harvard graduate and aspiring poet. The two were spent three months in the squalid detention center of La Ferté-Macé in Normandy. Cummings' fellow prisoners--the Machine-Fixer, the Zulu, the Young Skipper's Mate, the Wanderer, the Lobster--presented a human pageant reminiscent of Chaucer.

Meet the Author



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.

This is one of the most remarkable books that I've ever read - and I first flipped these pages 30+ years ago during my last year of college; the memories of this text stay with me still. How could anyone give these piece of writing less than '5' stars I'll never comprehend.

"Here's another slave for you boys." A mysterious, uniformed man pulled at a chain, resulting with a yelp from a young teenage girl. Her hands and her feet were chained with shackles. She fell down onto her knees and her forearms clumsily when she was handled with the man. As she pulled herself back up, she hissed and spat at the man's shoes. "She's a feisty one too." The man smirked as he pulled the chain along, dragging her and roughly tugging her into the last cell in its row, isolated from everyone else. He growled when she fought back against as he chained her to the wall, pinning her hands above her and pushing her down to her knees, also locking her waist to the wall.He slammed the door and locked her behind the bars, tossing the keys onto the floor by the boys. "Have fun with your new toy. Those are the keys to her chains too." The man said as he left. <br> Erika had a mess of blonde waves, falling down to her mid-back. She wore a small, black laced br<_>a; her breasts pushed together tightly to form a hole, a crevesse between them. Her skin was smooth, soft, and her body was completely waxed and shaven down. She wore a th<_>ong as a small act of mercy and nothing else but those two small articles of clothing. Erika was pretty and seemed almost delicate, yet slim with a slight athletic build. Her pretty blue eyes looked out from underneath her long eyelashes.

Lily wandered in, looking around with wide eyes. She absentmindedly played with the hem of her blue tanktop, which she wore over black leggings.

Walks in, a long knife stab that starts from his face to his stomach from a long battle. He wears a button up shirt but doesnt button it up and gym shorts. 5'8 long blonde hair pushed to the right and a body builder kind of build and says to everyone "hey"
