E.E. Cummings afforded distinguished biographer Charles Norman unprecedented access to family documents and priceless personal correspondence. The resulting history describes Cummings' time at Harvard, life in New York and Paris in the twenties, and dives into his writing and painting processes, while allowing the poet's works and personal tales to speak for themselves; this 1972 edition includes additional material and photographs, some never previously published.
"Because the book gets the feel of the man, whoever reads it will become a better reader of the poetry."
