At the time of his death in 1962 e.e. cummings was, next to Robert Frost, the most widely read poet in America. For this edition of cummings's work, George Firmage has gone back to the poet's original manuscripts to ensure the accuracy of the transcriptions. In particular, the spatial arrangement of the typography now conforms as precisely as possible to cummings's very specific intentions. To the contents of the volumes published during cummings's lifetime - now arranged in the order he originally specified - have been added all of the hitherto uncollected poems as well as the unpublished poems first issued in 1983.

Complete Poems, 1904-1962
“may my heart always be open to little / birds who are the secrets of living / whatever they sing is better than to know / and if men should not hear them men are old / may my mind stroll about hungry / and fearless and thirsty and supple / and even if it's sunday may i be wrong / for whenever men are right they are not young / and may myself do nothing usefully / and love yourself so more than truly / there's never been quite such a fool who could fail / pulling all the sky over him with one smile”
