E. E. Cummings’s erotic poems and drawings gathered in a single volume.

Many years ago the prodigious and famously prolific E. E. Cummings sat in his study writing and thinking about sex. His private brooding gave way to poems and drawings of sexual and romantic love that delight and provoke. Here, collected for this first time in a single volume, are those erotic poems and sketches, culled from Cummings’s original manuscripts by the distinguished editor George James Firmage.

from “16”
may i feel said he
(i’ll squeal said she
just once said he)
it’s fun said she
(may i touch said he
how much said she
a lot said he)
why not said she

Review: Erotic Poems

User Review  - Cole Krueger - Goodreads

ee cummings wrote masterful poetry. This collection is no less masterful than any of the others. The art work matches the poems and sets the tone. I'll certainly be revisiting this collection in a few years. Read full review
