    For some reason, I had never rated E E Cummings He became the icon for form twisting poetry, with his name written in lower case reflecting the way his poems used and abused typography, grammar, and punctuation I m a symbol manipulating machine, it s why I m a computer programmer and why I love to read But I manipulate symbols within rules, and I love rules I loved learning the rules of punctuation and spelling and gramm

    I find reviewing poetry like reviewing a color If your favorite color is blue, it s hard to explain why it appeals to you Or why blue is better then red Expressing the inarticulable, the ability to convey a sense of something beyond words through words, for me, is the greatness of a poet.I first stumbled across cummings in high school in one of those gloss covered, all encompassing, LITERATURE textbooks that public schools

    As I finished this slim book, I puzzled over how to best explain how it makes me feel I got this image in my head If I were stranded on a deserted island and allowed to take one book with me, this book would be in my top five of final, possible picks If I picked this book to take with me, when someone found me ten years later, I would still be puzzling over some of the meaning of the poems I would still be kept comfortably happy, sad,

    Ever since my modern literature class in college, I ve kind of had a thing against Cummings I hated his style As a grammar nazi, it completely confused me When the professor suggested that we read the poems aloud, I scoffed I loved poetry and I never had to read it aloud before so why should I now However, that professor was correct.When I came across this book on one of my lists, I told myself that I could suffer through just 100 poems I
