"FOR THIS MY SON WAS DEAD, AND IS ALIVE AGAIN; HE WAS LOST; AND IS FOUND." He was lost by the Norton-Harjes Ambulance Corps. He was officially dead as a result of official misinformation. He was entombed by the French Government. It took the better part of three months to find him and bring him back to life--with the help of powerful and willing friends on both sides of the Atlantic. The following documents tell the story...
Author Bio
E. E. Cummings
Edward Estlin Cummings was educated in Cambridge schools and received both a B.A. and an M.A. from Harvard. He was an ambulance driver in World War I, and spent three months in a French detention camp--an experience that inspired his antiwar novel, THE ENORMOUS ROOM. In his youth, he lived in Paris (where he studied painting) and New York, settling finally in Greenwich Village at 4 Patchin Place. Cummings became immensely popular as a poet; young people in particular responded to his romanticism, his abhorrence of war, and his satirical style, as well as the Bohemian milieu about which he often wrote. He was a stylistic innovator, and his poetry was famous for its unconventional punctuation, spelling, and structure; he also wrote candid and lyrical love poetry. In 1952, he gave the Charles Eliot Norton Lectures at Harvard (published as I: SIX NONLECTURES). In addition to writing poetry, Cummings was a prolific painter all his life; he also wrote one play and, as a dedicated fan, an introduction to a collection of Krazy Kat comics in 1945. He was married three times and had one daughter. In publications, Cummings's name was usually written in lowercase letters, but he himself capitalized it when he signed it. He died of a brain hemorrhage at the age of 68.
