E. E. Cummings

a.k.a. Edward Estlin Cummings

Author Code: AEEC

Born: Oct. 14, 1894 - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA

Died: Sep. 3, 1962 - North Conway, New Hampshire, USA

Educated at Harvard University, Cummings received his Master's degree in English and Classical Studies in 1916. At Harvard he befriended John Dos Passos and the two of them enlisted in the Ambulance Corps and went to Paris. He was arrested for suspected espionage and spent nearly four months in detention. His later novel, The Enormous Room (1922), would reflect his experiences during his incarceration. He was released in 1918 and returned to America where he was subsequently drafted in the army, although he saw no action overseas. During the 1920's and 1930's Cummings traveled much in Europe including many trips to Paris. In 1927, he produced the first of his four plays, Him, which received mixed reviews. On the other hand, his poetry became very popular and included Tulips and Chimneys (1923), XLI Poems (1925), ViVa (1931), No Thanks (1935), 1 X 1 (1944) and Xaipe (1950). In 1933, he received a Guggenheim Fellowship and in 1950 he became a Fellow of the American Academy of Poets. Cummings was also an accomplished artist. He succumbed to a cerebral hemorrhage at the age of 69. His other works include Eimi (1931), Santa Claus (1946) and 95 Poems (1958).
