Philina | 1562 comments I would like to nominate The Leopard again.


message 3: by Nathan (new)

Nathan | 421 comments Since April is National Poetry Month in the U.S. and Canada, I'd like to nominate 100 Selected Poems by e.e. cummings.

I picked this volume because it presents a good overview of cummings' work, including some of the most achingly beautiful love poems you'll ever read. It should be pretty easy to find. It has been in print since 1959 and used copies are available on amazon.com for $.01 + shipping.

I'll second that! I haven't read e.e. cummings in years, and I've been looking for a good collection to purchase for a while now.
