Thesis : a collection of poetry Cummings, Stephen Foster


The purpose to which I have given my energies in this gathering of poems, and within the limitation of an integral framework, has been to pursue the possibilities of the lyric freed from the conventional necessities of rhyme and reason. To this end the poems range from the pure melody of "Narcissus the Divine at Bedlam” to the Black Mountain style of "Elegy for Arthur Goodman" to the visual poem "Morning" to the surreal "City of Glass" to the seven poems in what I can only call a "prose idiom" to the personal statement of "To Tell a Lie."
