    The Enormous Room by e e cummings

Cummings spent three months in a French prison. From this experience came "The Enormous Room", a prose account of life in a military prison that contains no traces of bitterness or self-pity commonly found in such works. Instead, Cummings looked at the daily life and the strange characters in the enormous room with the playful eye and original wit so often apparent in his poems. Readers will delight in this early work by one of America's most unique literary voices.
