I love this book. Cumm...

I love this book. Cummings knows his way with words... His portrayal is a poem to humanity and a visceral sketch of the man against the stupidity of "the system". But "the system" are, in the end, also individuals and everything reduces to the individual and his personal position in life. I like Cummings writing for what he writes and the way he does it.

Cummings only novel, ...

Cummings' only novel, an autobiographical work about being imprisoned in France during WWI.

I completed this work ...

I completed this work by the young e.e.cummings written at 18 about his time as a prisoner or detainee of the French Government for suspicion during WWI. The author my be better known for his poetry but this is a work of nonfiction/memoir and the prose is delightful. He paints a picture with his words. I read this as an audio and am now going through it to study it a bit. Not sure yet how I would rate it. But it is probably a great piece of literature. Cummings and his friend B are really pacifist but go to Paris and volunteer as ambulance drivers. Because B writes letters home that are negative toward the French, they are detained in a war detention camp for several months. This book is about that experience. Cummings wrote it to satisfy his father who wanted to sue the French government for the imprisonment of his son. Cummings wrote it upon his father's word that he would not sue. The story follows the structure of The Pilgrim's Progress. It draws pictures of the characters through the written word. It is a journey for cummings in his early years. He wrote this when he was 18.

Challenging read due to C

Challenging read due to Cummings' poetic prose and his interspersing of French dialogue. It is also not a very straightforward read, as he jumps from story to story and introduces characters in whatever order seemed to appeal to him. In the end, I did find it rather rewarding - both for the style and semi-fictional account of the time period.
