The Harvard-educated writer, who preferred to sign his name in all lower case, is known the eccentricity of the typography and punctuation he employed to reinforce the rhythm and meaning of words. His poems truly leap off the page when performed aloud. This program, which celebrated the beauty of the individual, is set in a re-creation of New York's Greenwich Village, where e.e. cummings lived for nearly forty years.
