E.E. Cummings: The Writer's Almanac audio clip


100 Selected Poems

By E.E. Cummings

"To my way of thinking Cummings is, within his field of personal emotion, the lyrical field, one of the inventors of our time. He puts his inventions down with an unexpected refurbishing of phrase and a filigree delicacy of hairbreadth exact statement that is a continual challenge.”—John Dos Passos

“No one else has ever made avant-garde, experimental poems so attractive both to the general and the special reader; since the early '20s, Cummings has been more widely imitated and easily appreciated than any other modernist poet.”—Randall Jarrell
