This collection of poetry is remarkable. Cummings' style is unique which adds to the playfulness of many of his poems. It is rare that you read something that makes you feel this beautiful simply because you are female. My god, he loved women. Many of the poems are incredibly erotic (she says fanning herself) but many are fun and playful and curious and wonderful. His sketches are really good - yes many are erotic but independent of this, they remind me of other more commercial artists of his generation...very stylized and / or angular. I'm going to try and find a few in print.

If you are in love, buy this collection and read to each other. Sometimes, people are pretty lousy at expressing how they feel or how to say sorry - I'd think that if a man simply read one or two of these poems to me, I'd be a goner and be his forever. :)

Come on, what else can you give this collection? Many have tried, but only E. E. Cummings could compare a woman to a car in a way that women found even sexier than men. You can taste the sensuality when you read the words out loud to some of these - you don't even have to comprehend their meaning (of course, it's much much better when you do dwell on the meaning).

I really enjoyed this book. E.E. Cummings is great and I refer to this book often. His collection of erotic poems transcend to several generations and some poems are even funny!

Nice, but a very thin book. Left wanting more. I also enjoyed the illustrations, they added to the beauty of the poems.

Cummings has long been a favorite poet and this collection captures his unique slant on the erotic. I am still amazed at what magic he can create with words alone. Well worth buying!! Great service as well from the vendor.

It is a great selection of his poems with erotic themes. But it's really just that, there's no extra material - not, in my opinion, that it needed one, I say this only in case this matters to someone.

If you ever liked a poem by e. e. cummings, even if you're by no means a fan of poetry - in that your knowledge is very limited, and most of it seems incomprehensible - even then it's very likely you'll enjoy many of the poems in this collection, because they're short and accessible to the casual reader. And they're sexy and funny, or just superbly beautiful.

While I have no objections whatsoever to this edition, my only gripe is that in the whole of Kindle Store I can only find 2 books by e. e. cummings (this one and The Enormous Room, which is a novel). Whatever is stopping the publication of digital copies... COME ON! Maybe it's a geographical limitation, they don't sell it in the Brazilian market, who knows... but I'd love love love to have many titles from cummings.

I first encountered E.E. Cummings in high school and long ago bought his collected poems. This specialized anthology includes his drawings. No one will assign this book in high school, but it sure is fun.
