Scope and Contents

The critical text on the loose sheet by Augusto De Campos compares cummings' poetry to Mallarme's Un Coup de Des. De Campos notes that in contrast to lettrisme, in cummings' poetry the words are not dissociated from the meaning nor are letters valid by themselves. De Campos believes that the word expressionism (typographical gesturing) and disfigurement of the discursive in cummings' poetry find their best visual arts equivalent in the works of Paul Klee. This is the second edition, the first edition was published in 1960. Stored in Augusto de Campos box. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
