The Enormous Room

E. E. CUMMINGS (1894 - 1962)

"For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost; and is found."
He was lost by the Norton-Harjes Ambulance Corps.
He was officially dead as a result of official misinformation.
He was entombed by the French Government.
It took the better part of three months to find him and bring him back to life—with the help of powerful and willing friends on both sides of the Atlantic.
This is his story. (Summary from the introduction.)

Note: This account contains a lot of French. A listener might become frustrated if they do not understand that language.
