E.E. Cummings : the art of his poetry by Norman Friedman( Book )

47 editions published between 1960 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Friedman argues that critics who have focused on what Cummings's poetry lacks have failed to judge Cummings on his strengths. [He] identifies a main strength of Cummings as his being a 'sensual mystic.' The book unpacks Cummings's subject matter, devices, and symbolism, ultimately helping readers develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of Cummings's work"--Publisher marketing

British naval weapons of World War Two : the John Lambert collection by Norman Friedman( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Lambert was a renowned naval draughtsman, whose plans were highly valued for their accuracy and detail by modelmakers and enthusiasts. By the time of his death in 2016 he had produced over 850 sheets of drawings, many of which have never been published. These have now been acquired by Seaforth and this is the first of a planned series of albums on selected themes, reproducing complete sheets at a large page size, with an expert commentary and captioning. The initial volumes will concentrate on British naval weaponry used in the Second World War, thus completing the project John Lambert was working on when he died. His interest was always focused on smaller warships and his weapons drawings tend to be of open mountings - the kind that present a real challenge to modelmakers - rather than enclosed turret guns, but he also produced drawings of torpedo tubes, underwater weapons, fire-control directors and even some specific armament-related deck fittings. This volume covers all such weapons carried by British destroyers of this era, with additional appendices devoted to earlier guns still in service, and destroyer-calibre weapons only mounted in larger ships. The drawings are backed by introductory essays by Norman Friedman, an acknowledged authority on naval ordnance, while a selection of photographs add to the value of the book as visual reference

Naval anti-aircraft guns and gunnery by Norman Friedman( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book dus for naval anti-aircraft defense what Friedman's Naval Firepower did for surface gunnery - it makes a highly complex but historically crucial suB. J.ect accessible to the layman. It traces the growing aerial threat from its inception in WWI and the response of each of the major navies down to the end of WWII, highlighting in particular the underestimated danger from dive-bombing. The work considers what effective AA fire-control required, and how well each navy's systems actually worked, analyzing the weapons, how they were placed on ships, and how this reflected the tactical concepts of naval AA defense. All important guns, directors and electronics are represented in close-up photos and drawings, and lengthy appendices detail their technical data. It is, simply, another superb contribution to naval technical history by its leading exponent

Following the earlier volumes on destroyer and escort armament, this one covers the multitude of weapons carried by Coastal Forces, many of which were improvised, ad hoc or obsolescent, but eventually leading to powerful purpose-designed weaponry

Eimi : a journey through Soviet Russia by E. E Cummings( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While sometimes termed a "novel," it is better described as a novelistic travelogue, the diary of a trip to Russia in the 1930s during the rise of the Stalinist government. Despite some contempt for what he witnesses, Cummings's narrator has an effective, occasionally hilarious way of evoking feelings of accord and understanding. As Ezra Pound wrote, Cummings's Soviet Union is laid "out there pellucidly on the page in all its Slavic unfinishedness, in all of its Dostoievskian slobberyness
