Description of Artwork: In "The Enormous Room," E.E. Cummings' first prose, he tells of the censorship and subsequent internment that he faced during World War I. "The Enormous Room" was written in a very modern style of prose and was much admired by Cummings' fellow writers, such as Hemingway. In an introduction to the 1934 edition of the book he says that "The Enormous Room" was meant to be a damning critique of those who "hate by categorying and pigeon-holing human beings".
