E. E. Cummings

1894-1962

E. E. Cummings is one of my strongest influences.  I first fell in love with his work when my dad introduced it to me. He did not like Cummings work, but I instantly fell in love with it.  I love his use of spacing, or lack thereof, to affect the pacing of his poems.  He is accessible, and a great poet for those who aren’t sure if they are into it.  He’s just so easy to fall in love with.
