e.e. cummings

six nonlectures 1:

i & my parents

complete on 1 CD


In the first of his six nonlectures: e.e. cummings begins his "nonlectures" with the warning "I haven't the remotest intention of posing as a lecturer." Over the course of an hour, cummings discusses the moving story of his parent's love; reads some of his own love poems; quotes Rilke, and concludes reading a favorite poem of his mother's and his: Wordsworth's Intimations Of Immortality.

This is the first non-lecture complete on 1 CD. Running time is approximately one hour. We offer each of the six non-lectures individually or as a set of 6 CDs:

1. i & my parents

2. i & their son

3. i & selfdiscovery

4. i & you & is

5. i & now & him

6. i & am & santa claus


These talks contain selections from the poetry of Wordsworth, Donne, Shakespeare, Dante, and others, including e.e. cummings own works. Together, it forms a good introduction to the poet's philosophy, life & work--delivered in his own inimitable voice.
