NATURE,LOVE AND THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE MASS MENTALITY AND THE INDIVIDUAL ORIGINALITY, Are Some Of The Most Recurring Themes In His Poetry.

It Is Rather Hard To Categorize Him Into Any Fixed Group For He Wrote All Kinds Of Verse : Traditional, Avant-Garde,Surrealist,Dadaist,Impressionistic and many other known poetic forms n movements!

E.E.CUMMINGS IS GENERALLY REGARDED AS AN PRE-EMINENT POET IN MODERN AMERICAN POETRY AND DESPITE BEING A VICTIM OF COMPARISIONS WITH A ELIOT OR A POUND,HE SURVIVED HIS UNIQUENESS AS A POET AND AS SOMEONE WHO HAD ALWAYS TRIED TO BRING FORCE PLUS FRESHNESS IN LANGUAGE !
He was also an accomplished painter and due to that he often put images unto the page of his poems and that often makes his poetry hard to grasp!

He kept touring Europe,especially,PARIS,many times.He also visited many countries of North Africa.But,His Most Important Tour Was That Of ‘USSR’ In 1931 And He Penned A Travelogue Of Sorts Detailing The Stifling Plus Suffocating Lives Of Russians Under The Repressive Regime Of Communism !

e e cummings occupies an important place in the American Literature And He Will Have An Abiding Presence In The American Poetry !

He Died Of A Massive Stroke In 1962 At The Age Of 68 .
Through His Writings He Will Always Be Here !
