e.e. cummings, in his poem “La Guerre,”[ii] for example, adapts the free verse style of Whitman, and the introspective and metaphysical view of death which is reminiscent of Dickinson’s work:
the bigness of cannon is skillful,
but i have seen
death’s clever enormous voice
which hides in a fragility
of poppies . . . .
In addition, e. e. cumming’s economy of words and his lack of punctuation and capitalization could be seen as a manifestation of Dickinson’s poetic style.
e.e. cummings’ visual style lends itself to depictions of his works via digital storytelling and video. Here is one example.
