From Our Editors

One of the greatest 20th century American poets - if not the greatest - E. E. Cummings forever changed the landscape of modern poetry with his indelible touch. Refusing to cow-tow to authority, literary or otherwise, Cummings deconstructed poetic conventions offering a fresh and insightful voice. A master of form and of the subtle nuances of language, he was probably best known for his use of satire, lyricism and modern mode of expression. E. E. Cummings: Selected Poems features his landmark works - 156 poems in all - 13 drawings, oils and watercolours by Cummings and introductions by his biographer, Richard S. Kennedy.
