About the Author

e.e. cummings (1894-1962) was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts. After earning a B.A. and M.A. at Harvard in Latin and Greek, he went to France as a volunteer ambulance driver with the French army during World War I. The majority of his life was spent writing poetry and painting in New York's Greenwich Village.

From AudioFile

This compilation of poetry read by the author is indeed essential listening for those who love his work. The poet, known for his lowercase letters and quirky phrases, shares his natural phrasing and original cadences. He reads slowly, deliberately. Even a line like a hero equals any jerk who is afraid to dare to answer no is read solemnly, with cummings lingering only over the word jerk revealing the merest hint of humor. Cummingss quizzical introspections on various topics are filled with his questioning and idiosyncratic imagination. Put on this CD for a crowd of poetry lovers and host a night of singular performance by a beloved American poet. Or hoard its singularity for your personal listening pleasure.

What a treat! EE Cummings reads his poetry in this short audio book. His poems are so full of life and layers of meaning. Listening to him adds an additional layer of enjoyment as well.

Cummings is among those authors who add significantly to the average poetry lovers ability to penetrate the poets meaning by hearing him read. A sheer delight!
