E. E. Cummings: A Life 2.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

More than adequately and fairly summarizes his life.  However, a bit repetitive in places.

Ms. Cheever is very quick to condemn Cummings based on several poems containing objectionable language. She does not delve into various interpretations of these works, exploring possible motivations and deeper reasoning for their having been written, but rather chooses to cast off these works as being no more than inflammatory writings from a racist and anti-Semite. In creating her portrait of the man, her brushstrokes are too broad—its reads as nothing more than an extended set of CliffNotes—and she seems to have no more than an elementary understanding of his work.
