The exhilirating and wildly popular 3 Poems by… Poetry Discussion Group continues this month with a visit to the lovely, perplexing and sometimes snarky world of E.E. Cummings.  We’re even going to touch on the controversy over decapitalizing his name.  Famous for his unconventional punctuation and typography, his vibrant celebrations of love and individuality, and his scathing satirizations of conformists, Cummings is among the best-loved American poets, and critics often credit him with revolutionizing American poetry.  And did you know that he identified as a painter as much as he did as a poet? 

3 Poems By E.E. Cummings Poetry Discussion will take place tomorrow, Thursday, November 13th, at 7:30 in Classroom A at Main Library.  We will discuss:

We’re even tucking an extra poem into our boots, “the Cambridge ladies who live in furnished souls,” just in case we want to keep going.  (But don’t tell, because then we’d have to rename the group, and “4 Poems by…” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.)
