Már ​nevének szokatlan helyesírása is sejteti, hogy Edward Estlin Cummings (1894-1962) afféle irodalmi fenegyerek volt, elszánt újító és bálványdöntögető. Verseinek olvastán első érzésünk alighanem a berzenkedés, a "Mi akar ez lenni?" fanyalgása, amíg rá nem jövünk, hogy a tipográfiai és ortográfiai trükkök és bonyodalmak mögött egy alapjában naiv, romantikus és kamaszos szenvedélyű, a leghagyományosabb értelemben költői költő rejtőzik, és próbál - általában több, mint kevesebb sikerrel - huszadik századi érvényt szerezni egyszerű és egyértelmű közlendőinek: hogy az élet szép, a háború aljas és az egyéniség nagy érték. Cummings festő is volt, és verseiben is nagy szerepet játszik a vizuális elem: a szavak, illetve a betűk szokatlan elrendezésével sugallja tárgyával kapcsolatos érzelmeit, a látványok és helyzetek átélésének az egyszeri pillanatokba zsúfolódó és a nyelv hagyományos eszközeivel megragadhatatlan képlékenységét.

e. e. cummings - Tulips ​& Chimneys
Fresh ​and candid, by turns earthy, tender, defiant, and romantic, Cummings's poems celebrate the uniqueness of each individual, the need to protest the dehumanizing force of organizations, and the exuberant power of love.

e. e. cummings - The ​Enormous Room
In ​1917 young Edward Estlin Cummings went to France as a volunteer with a Red Cross ambulance unit on the western front. But his free-spirited, insubordinate ways soon got him tagged as a possible enemy of La Patrie, and he was summarily tossed into a French concentration camp at La Ferte-Mace in Normandy. Under the vilest conditions, Cummings found fulfillment of his ever elusive quest for freedom. The Enormous Room, his account of his four-month confinement, reads like a latter-day Pilgrim's Progress, a journey into dispossession, to a place among the most debased and deprived of human creatures. Cummings's hopeful tone reflects the essential paradox of his existence: to lose everything is to become free, and so to be saved.

e. e. cummings - Complete ​Poems
At ​the time of his death in 1962, E. E. Cummings was, next to Robert Frost, the most widely read poet in America. Combining Thoreau's controlled belligerence with the brash abandon of an uninhibited bohemian, Cummings, together with Pound, Eliot, and William Carlos Williams, helped bring about the twentieth-century revolution in literary expression. He is recognized on the one hand as the author of some of the most beautiful lyric poems written in the English language, and on the other as one of the most inventive American poets of his time in the worlds of Richard Kostelanetz, "the major American poet of the middle-twentieth-century."
