ABSTRACT

The literature produced from prison experience is often grim in tone and centred on naturalistic description, psychological analysis or polemical argument. Bunyan, Dostoevsky and Dickens all spent some time in prison and wrote works relevant to my concerns here, but it would be misleading to draw close comparisons with e. e. cummings’ experience as a detainee in the First World War or with the book which he saw published in 1922, The Enormous Room. 1 For one thing, cummings seems to have enjoyed being in La Ferté-Macé, and, for another, The Enormous Room is a mischievously funny text. It sustains a rich verbal inventiveness, and displays both the naive optimism of the author’s youth and a concerted exposition of his ideas about modern art. A close reading of the book reveals a particular dimension — involving primitivism expressed in terms of childhood and play — which yields insights into the artistic methods and principles of postwar American modernism.
