From the publisher

The most notable work of fiction from our most beloved modernist poet, The Enormous Room was one of the greatest-yet still not fully recognised- American literary works to emerge out of World War I. Drawing on E. E. Cummings's experiences in France as a volunteer ambulance driver, this novel takes us through a series of mishaps that led to the poet being arrested for treason and imprisoned. Out of this trauma Cummings produced a work like no other-a story of oppression and injustice told with his characteristic linguistic energy and unflappable exuberance, which celebrates the spirit of the individual and offers a brave and brilliant opposition in the face of the inhumanity of war.
