Edward Estlin Cummings was one of the most radically experimental and inventive writers of the 20th century. He was born October 14, 1894, in Cambridge, Massachusetts and attended Harvard University. During World War I, Edward worked as an ambulance driver in the army.
E. E. Cummings had a writing style all his own. One trademark of his was to use very few uppercase letters. Edward's poetry appears cynical at first, but is generally lyrical and almost romantic. His first volume was titled Tulips and Chimneys . Edward died in 1962.
