Discussions Discussion Modern Poetry
Reese Turlington, Dec. 2, 2011

e.e. cummings, one of the most popular poets of the 20th century. Cummings’ poetry often deals with themes of love and nature, as well as the relationship of the individual to the masses and to the world. He often injects striking satire into hiw work.

Idiosyncrasy of syntax, unique arranging of individual words into larger phrases and sentences are some of his hallmarks. Many of his most striking poems do not involve any typographical or punctuation innovations at all, but purely syntactic ones.

Here Cummings reads “next to of course god america i”…and yes, he meant not to capitalize the title
