No thanks by E. E Cummings( Book )

18 editions published between 1978 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

E.E. Cummings, along with Pound, Eliot, and Williams, helped bring about the twentieth-century revolution in literary expression. He is recognized as the author of some of the most beautiful lyric poems written in the English language and also as one of the most inventive American poets of his time. Fresh and candid, by turns earthy, tender, defiant, and romantic, Cummings's poems celebrate the uniqueness of each individual, the need to protest the dehumanizing force of organizations, and the exuberant power of love. No Thanks was first published in 1935; although Cummings was by then in mid-career, he had still not achieved recognition, and the title refers ironically to publishers' rejections. No Thanks contains some of Cummings's most daring literary experiments, and it represents most fully his view of life-romantic individualism. The poems celebrate an openly felt response to the beauties of the natural world, and they give first place to love, especially sexual love, in all its manifestations. The volume includes such favorites as "sonnet entitled how to run the world)," "may I feel said he," "Jehovah buried. Satan dead," "be of love (a little)," and the now-famous grasshopper poem. (Barnes & Noble)

E. E. Cummings, a miscellany by E. E Cummings( Book )

9 editions published between 1958 and 2018 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Formally fractured and yet gleefully alive and whole, E. E. Cummings's groundbreaking modernist poetry expanded the boundaries of language. In A Miscellany, originally released in a limited run in 1958, Cummings lent his delightfully original voice to "a cluster of epigrams," forty-nine essays, a poem, and three speeches from an unfinished play. Seven years later, George J. Firmage-- editor of much of Cummings's work, including Complete Poems-- broadened the scope of this idiosyncratic collection of Cummings's work, adding seven more poems and essays, and many of Cummings's unpublished line drawings. Together, these pieces paint a distinctive portrait of Cummings's eccentric, yet precise, genius. His essays explore everything from Cubism to the circus, equally quick to analyze his poetic contemporaries and satirize New York society. As Cummings wrote in his original foreword, A Miscellany "contain[s] a great deal of liveliness and nothing dead." This remains true today, more than fifty years after its original publication." --
