Review:

What a book, what a poet, what a man, what a patriot, what a proud nation he is the first (and only?) citizen of--no, he didn't discover New Jersey, nuclear fission, or nucoa, just himself.--William Saroyan "The Nation "

E. E. Cummings has given so much delight over the years--by his poetry, his painting, and his personality--that a deeply serious side of him, that of the dedicated man, has been overlooked... i: Six Nonlectures should help to bring him into sharper focus; [it is] the autobiography of a man who, through all the strange deviations of a strange age, has remained true to himself--one, moreover, so completely creative that even his lectures, which he calls 'nonlectures, ' offer new esthetic experiences... Seldom, indeed, has the subject of the creator and the creative faculty been so frankly and inspiringly present.--Saturday Review

In flashes of the nonlecturing, and steadily in the readings, the always surprising freshness, the durability, the high-spirited and deep-rooted resources of E. E. Cummings' work are made apparent to us once more. For this sufficient reason, i is a blessing.--New England Quarterly

Six marvelously unconventional lectures... An aesthetic self-portrait and a definition of Mr. Cummings's 'stance' as a writer. Full of originality, high spirits, and aphoristic dicta, they express a credo of intense individualism.--The Atlantic
