I suppose this will be the most nontraditional analysis I will do this year, my thoughts about this sweet short poem. One of, scratch that, my absolute favorite novel and movie of all time is Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. I easily saw similarities between this poem and that book.
But I want to elaborate on a deeper issue we're fast approaching in our society. I've found in my life girls are often expected to, and usually do, grow years beyond their actual age. Cummings gives light to soliciting of nymphets in his poem "wanta". The mystical easy-going attitude most of these young lovers give off.
The structure of the poem is very obviously unfamiliar to me, i'll admit that. But I feel as if the reader is supposed to read the lines in the way its written, "thewoman" and "was not" meant to be short and quick. Also you're supposed to read it staggered and slow.
Cummings goal was to show readers the situation a potential suitor could be met with.
