My first exposure to cummings and this was probably a seclection of what is considered to be his best poems. At first jarred by the syntactic rule-breaking, by the end of the book I was beginning to understand some reason to his use of words in unorthodox roles. While many of the poems left me with no logical interpretation, many of them were comprehendable and some downright hilarious. This book of poetry came to my attention when the poem "87" was featured on Garrison Keillor's Writer's Almanac on cummings' birthday (10/14/1894).
