it was amazing

Cummings acted like an alchemist of language, truly a master of his craft, not simply adapting ideas to words but re-shaping language to breathe life across the page. And in those breaths are wonderful odes to love, life and all the mysteries of the world. A must-read for anyone!

(and a giant puzzle for me, because I underlined no less than eight passages that would fit perfectly as a motto to the third and last part of my own new book of poetry...!)
