About E E Cummings

e.e. cummings (1894-1962) remains one of America's most popular poets. Listeners are enchanted by his witty originality and technical virtuosity, but his gifts were always in serve to his desire to portray the tumultuous upheavals of ordinary life, the sensuous appeals of love, and the limits of rational thought. His quickening lyrical impulse was matched by an exuberant playfulness--language sent spinning against its own gravity--that drew attention to the vitality of the spontaneous individual. He could be as satirical as he was amorous, as precise as he was flighty, as accessible as he was experimental. In this new collection, you can listen to cummings's charming and cultivated voice as he reads, and follow in the accompanying booklet the way his words dance around the page--as fresh and ebullient as the day they were written.show more
