E. E. Cummings

Edward Estlin "E. E." Cummings styled as e e cummings, as he is attributed in many of his published works, was an American poet, essayist and playwright. He wrote 2,900 poems, two autobiographical novels, four plays, several essays, he is regarded as one of the most important American poets of the 20th century. Cummings is associated with modernist free-form poetry. Much of his work uses lower case spellings for poetic expression, his use of lower case extended to rendering the personal pronoun I as i, as in the phrase "i shall go.” Edward Estlin Cummings was born on October 14, 1894 in Cambridge, Massachusetts to Edward Cummings and the former Rebecca Haswell Clarke, a well-known Unitarian couple in the city. His father was a professor at Harvard University who became nationally known as the minister of South Congregational Church in Boston, Massachusetts, his mother, who loved to spend time with her children, played games with Cummings and his sister, Elizabeth. From an early age, Cummings' parents supported his creative gifts.

Cummings wrote poems and drew as a child, he played outdoors with the many other children who lived in his neighborhood. He grew up in the company of such family friends as the philosophers William Josiah Royce. Many of Cummings' summers were spent on Silver Lake in Madison, New Hampshire, where his father had built two houses along the eastern shore; the family purchased the nearby Joy Farm where Cummings had his primary summer residence. He expressed; as he matured, Cummings moved to an "I, Thou" relationship with God. His journals are replete with references to "le bon Dieu", as well as prayers for inspiration in his poetry and artwork. Cummings "also prayed for strength to be his essential self, for relief of spirit in times of depression."Cummings wanted to be a poet from childhood and wrote poetry daily from age 8 to 22, exploring assorted forms. He graduated from Harvard University with a Bachelor of Arts degree magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa in 1915 and received a Master of Arts degree from the university in 1916.

In his studies at Harvard, he developed an interest in modern poetry, which ignored conventional grammar and syntax, while aiming for a dynamic use of language. Upon graduating, he worked for a book dealer. In 1917, with the First World War ongoing in Europe, Cummings enlisted in the Norton-Harjes Ambulance Corps. On the boat to France, he met William Slater Brown and they would become friends. Due to an administrative error and Brown did not receive an assignment five weeks, a period they spent exploring Paris. Cummings fell in love with the city. During their service in the ambulance corps, the two young writers sent letters home that drew the attention of the military censors, they were known to prefer the company of French soldiers over fellow ambulance drivers. The two expressed anti-war views. On September 21, 1917, five months after starting his belated assignment and William Slater Brown were arrested by the French military on suspicion of espionage and undesirable activities, they were held for three and a half months in a military detention camp at the Dépôt de Triage, in La Ferté-Macé, Normandy.

They were imprisoned with other detainees in a large room. Cummings' father failed to obtain his son's release through diplomatic channels, in December 1917 he wrote a letter to President Woodrow Wilson. Cummings was released on December 19, 1917, Brown was released two months later. Cummings used his prison experience as the basis for his novel, The Enormous Room, about which F. Scott Fitzgerald said, "Of all the work by young men who have sprung up since 1920 one book survives—The Enormous Room by e e cummings... Those few who cause books to live have not been able to endure the thought of its mortality."Cummings returned to the United States on New Year's Day 1918. In 1918 he was drafted into the army, he served in the 12th Division at Camp Devens, until November 1918. Cummings lived there for two years before returning to New York, his collection Tulips and Chimneys was published in 1923 and his inventive use of grammar and syntax is evident. The book was cut by his editor. XLI Poems was published in 1925.

With these collections, Cummings made his reputation as an avant garde poet. During the rest of the 1920s and 1930s, Cummings returned to Paris a number of times, traveled throughout Europe, among others, artist Pablo Picasso. In 1931 Cummings traveled to the Soviet Union, recounting his experiences in Eimi, published two years later. During these years Cummings traveled to Northern Africa and Mexico, he worked as an portrait artist for Vanity Fair magazine. In 1926, Cummings' parents were in a car crash. Cummings described the crash in the following passage from his i: six nonlectures series given at Harvard in 1952 and 1953: A locomotive cut the car in half, killing my father instantly; when two brakemen jumped from the halted train, they saw a woman standing – dazed but erect – beside a mangled machine. One of her hands (the yo

Royal Melbourne Philharmonic

Royal Melbourne Philharmonic is a 120-voice choir and orchestra in Melbourne, Australia. It was established in 1853, is Australia's oldest surviving cultural organisation. Although when it was founded the RMP Orchestra was Melbourne's premier orchestra, many of the orchestra's earlier members merged with the fledgling Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and it lost its separate identity; the RMP has since reestablished its own orchestra and performs both with and without the RMP Choir. Members of the choir are unpaid volunteers; the RMP has participated at a number of important historical events, including the opening of the Melbourne Town Hall in 1870, the Melbourne International Exhibition of 1880, the Great Centennial Exhibition of 1888, the opening of the first Parliament of Australia at the Royal Exhibition Building in 1901, the 1956 Summer Olympics, the Centenary of Australian Federation celebrations in 2001. The RMP has performed Handel's Messiah at least once every year since 1853, a world record for an unbroken sequence of annual performances of this oratorio.

It has presented the Australian premieres of such works as Mozart's Requiem, Bach's St Matthew Passion, Handel's Israel in Egypt and Jephtha, Mendelssohn's Elijah, Vivaldi's Gloria, Dvořák's Stabat Mater, Elgar's The Kingdom, Walton's Belshazzar's Feast and others. The current Music Director and Chief Conductor is Andrew Wailes. Earlier chief conductors have included Sir Bernard Heinze. Heinze held the post from 1927 to 1953. Guest conductors have included Sir Malcolm Sargent, Sir Thomas Beecham, George Szell, Sir Granville Bantock, Sir Eugene Goossens and Sir Charles Groves. "Radio Eye – For the Love of Harmony".
