Writers, Weddings, and the Wild West.

This week in words: childhood drawings by e.e. cummings, whose poems I Will Wade Out and You Are Tired (I Think) are two of my favorites,


a round-up of writers' weddings, including - as pictured below - those of Hemingway, Styron, Raymond Carver (at 19), and Arthur Miller, 


and this spectacular sentence. Wow.


e.e. cummings drawings via the Massachusetts Historical Society. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  3. What fun drawings from e.e. cummings! Fun to see early indications of his writing style in them.

    Also, I believe that's Arthur, not Henry, Miller in the last wedding pic with Marilyn Monroe.

  9. Shoko, it's my first time reading I Will Wade Out and oh gosh it just rocked me. it says something about continuing, about seeking - the bravery to burn for something. to keep going. thanks for sharing it (and for the link!).
