This collection of poetry is remarkable. Cummings' style is unique which adds to the playfulness of many of his poems. It is rare that you read something that makes you feel this beautiful simply because you are female. My god, he loved women. Many of the poems are incredibly erotic (she says fanning herself) but many are fun and playful and curious and wonderful. His sketches are really good - yes many are erotic but independent of this, they remind me of other more commercial artists of his generation...very stylized and / or angular. I'm going to try and find a few in print.
If you are in love, buy this collection and read to each other. Sometimes, people are pretty lousy at expressing how they feel or how to say sorry - I'd think that if a man simply read one or two of these poems to me, I'd be a goner and be his forever. :)
Note: We only sell smart, well-written books that are fun to read. They are also all trade paperbacks (unless otherwise noted). Trade paperbacks are bigger than mass market paperbacks; they are more durable; the pages don't fall out; they have larger print; they are wider and easier to hold (especially while reading on your back) & they are more affordable than cumbersome hardbacks. You can even shade your eyes from the sun and take a nap with a trade paperback book.
