Product Overview

The Harvard-educated writer, who preferred to sign his name in all lower case, is known for the eccentricity of the typography and punctuation he employed to reinforce the rhythm and meaning of words. His poems truly leap off the page when performed aloud. This program, which celebrated the beauty of the individual, is set in a re-creation of New York's Greenwich Village, where e.e. cummings lived for nearly forty years.

Includes: "when faces called flowers float out of the ground", "she being Brand-new", "anyone lived in a pretty how town", "nobody loses all the time", "in Just-spring when the world is mud-luscious", "sweet spring is your time", "who knows if the moon's a balloon", "since feeling is first", "lucky means finding Holes", "Jimmie's got a goil", "come, gaze with me upon this dome", "my sweet old etcetera", "this little bride & groom are standing", "Buffalo Bill's defunct", "fire stop thief help murder save the world" (excerpt), "one winter afternoon", "when serpents bargain for the right to squirm", "of Ever-Ever Land i speak", "the great advantage of being alive", "sweet spring is your time", "old age sticks up Keep Off signs", "you shall above all things be glad and young", and "if everything happens that can't be done" (excerpt).
