At the time of his death in 1962 e.e. cummings was, next to Robert Frost, the most widely read poet in America. For this edition of cummings's work, George Firmage has gone back to the poet's original manuscripts to ensure the accuracy of the transcriptions. In particular, the spatial arrangement of the typography now conforms as precisely as possible to cummings's very specific intentions. To the contents of the volumes published during cummings's lifetime - now arranged in the order he originally specified - have been added all of the hitherto uncollected poems as well as the unpublished poems first issued in 1983.

With the able hand of editor Firmage, Liveright (the poet's first book publisher) has brought out the definitive edition of Cummings's poetry. This volume has been prepared directly from the poet's original manuscripts, preserving the original typography and format. It includes all the previously published works, from Tulips (1922) to Etcetera (1983), as well as 36 uncollected poems that originally appeared in little magazines or anthologies. These uncollected poems include Cummings's important translation of Louis Aragon's Le Front Rouge , with the French text en face . Firmage has written a brief introductory note and provided an extremely helpful index of first lines. This volume is a godsend for specialist and general reader alike, providing all of Cummings's poetry from the juvenilia of 1904 to the poems written just before his death in 1962. A mandatory purchase for all libraries.
