Summary
From the author of -- The Enormous Room We follow Cummings as he permanently flees to Greenwich Village to be among other modernist poets of the day--Marianne Moore, Hart Crane, Dylan Thomas--and we see the development of both the poet and his work against the backdrop of modernism and through the influences of his contemporaries: Stein, Amy Lowell, Joyce, and Pound. Cheever's fascinating book gives us the evolution of an artist whose writing was at the forefront of what was new and daring and bold in an America in transition. (With 28 pages of black-and-white images.) From the Hardcover edition
Summary
A reassessment of the life and work of the preeminent 20th-century poet examines the idiosyncratic expressions that led to critical disagreements about his achievements, providing coverage of such topics as his Cambridge youth, Harvard education and relationships with fellow writers
