E. E. Cummings (Edward Estlin Cummings, in full) was an American poet (as well as a playwright, painter, novelist, and lecturer) best known for his use of unusual punctuation, capitalization and grammar in his poems (to the extent that many people could tell you what a Cummings poem looks like, but far fewer could talk confidently about what any of his poems is about).
