Article

Edward Estlin Cummings was a prolific and iconoclastic figure in American poetry of the mid-twentieth century. He experimented with unconventional verse forms, often playfully disrupting syntax, punctuation, and typography, and creating a more flexible, visually active kind of poetry, which yet retained surprising lyric power. He was also a painter and dramatist.
