Reviews

Incisive...[Rosenblitt's] richest observations concern Cummings's psychological motivations...[An] illuminating look at how Cummings acquired his "fearlessness" as a writer.
A perceptive, captivating portrait...Besides insightful analyses of Cummings's poetry, Rosenblitt presents him as an accomplished artist...A graceful, sympathetic biography of an innovative American poet.
With grace and intelligence, Rosenblitt brings the worlds of Harvard, Cambridge, and 'the Front' to vivid life...Reading Cummings through the lens of her insight is revelatory, and the brilliance of this work may reestablish his place as a poet of towering importance.
