E.E. CummingsWhat We Know
PAGE WRITTEN BY: QUINN, TAYLOR, AND SHALLON.

Cummings was born on October 14, 1894 in Cambridge Massachusetts. He Grew up there with his family, and liked his child hood very much. He then went to college at Harvard. There, he studied Greek and many other languages. But while he was there, he was introduced to Ezra Pounds's work. His Writing and artistry influenced Cummings greatly. After graduating, he volunteered for the Norton-Harries ambulance corpse.

He returned from war with a new friend, William Slater Brown. But, as they returned, Brown was arrested for writing incriminating letters back home, during the war. But, E.E Cummings refused to leave his friends side, so he followed Brown to a concentration camp. They were only freed after the thankfully persuasive father to Cummings. The experience inspired one of Cummings stories, "The Enormous room".

In 1932 Cummings met the woman that he would spend the rest of his life with. And although they weren’t officially married, their rolls in each other’s lives were defiantly husband and wife. Her name was Marion Morehouse and they traveled the world together. They went to places like Russia and Mexico. Just 30 years later, on december 3rd, 1962, Cummings died-just 15 years after his mother- of cerebral hemorrhage.

in Just-
spring when the world is mud-
luscious the little
lame balloonman

whistles far and wee

and eddieandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it's
spring

when the world is puddle-wonderful

the queer
old balloonman whistles

and bettyandisbel come dancing

from hop-scotch and jump-rope and

it's
spring
and

the

goat-footed

balloonMan whistles
far
and
