Complete Poems, 1904-1962 by E.E. Cummings

Into the Wild

Complete Poems, 1904-1962 Read Online Free - At the time of his death in 1962, E. E. Cummings was, next to Robert Frost, the most widely read poet in America. Combining Thoreau's controlled belligerence with the brash abandon of an uninhibited bohemian, Cummings, together with Pound, Eliot, and William Carlos Williams, helped bring about the twentieth-century revolution in literary expression. He is recognized on the one hand as the author of some of the most beautiful lyric poems written in the English language, and on the other as one of the most inventive American poets of his time in the worlds of Richard Kostelanetz, "the major American poet of the middle-twentieth-century."

A friend of mine called me today to ask me to send him an e e cummings poem I used to have on my wall at work when I worked with him – oh, a decade ago. Neither of us thought it would be necessary for him to tell me which one, and so I sent him this one: somewhere i have never travelled, gladly be...

Dear Edward, In the rain-darkness, the sunset being sheathed, i sit and think of you. You may find this peculiar, that I think of you, without knowing you, but it's true. And, though i am a little church (no great cathedral), I'd have made my love known to you, if ever we'd have had the serendipit...

I love e.e.cummings' poetry. There is nothing like it. I can hardly review something so amazing, to be honest. "there's time for laughing and there's time for crying - for hoping for despair for peace for longing - a time for growing and a time for dying: a night for silence and a day for singing but...

This tome will be on my "currently reading" list for quite a while. Yesterday my husband was watching an old James Caan movie, "The Gambler" when he paused it and said, "Step away from the computer. Now I'm going to give you three words from a poem (which he'd heard recited in the movie) and I wa...

of all the collections of e e's works this is the finest complete, of course, why wouldn't it be? "as is the sea marvelous from god’s hands which sent her forth to sleep upon the world and the earth withers the moon crumbles one by one stars flutter into dust but the sea does not change and she goes forth out...

This is on my "currently reading" list, becuase for me, this is a book you read in dribs and drabs. It's rather the same as if you don't want to O.D. on a potent drug, such is the Beauty of this volume. When I think of the word poetry this is one of the definitions. (see also ts eliot, stephen cr...
