One of America's most gifted poets, e.e. cummings was a Greenwich Village resident from the 1920?s until his death in 1962. His poetry is known for his use of unusual typography, slang, dialect and the rhythms of jazz, but he also painted and wrote essays, satire, character sketches and a novel. Mort Kroos, a member of Actors? Equity, has staged poetry readings?including those of cummings?performed in numerous plays, and is a principal in the company Dada New York. He will be joined by a companion reader. We will meet in the atmospheric cafe and bar of one of Greenwich Village's iconic buildings, an 1829 Federal house designated an individual city landmark in June 2004 together with its neighbors, 127 and 131 MacDougal Street.
