explication of cummings' poem since feeling is first

- explication of e. e. cummings' poem since feeling is first       e. e. cummings' "since feeling is first" is about feeling (802).  This is immediately evident from the title and first line, which emphasize the word "feeling" in several different ways.  The stresses on "feel-" and "first," as well as the alliteration between those two words, make explicit their connection and importance, and the repetition of the same line in both title and first line serves to enhance the effect.       The meaning of the first line is clear, but because of cummings' characteristic absence of punctuation and capitalization as well as sentence structure, the next few lines are more ambiguous.  The first t...   [tags: since feeling is first]
