E. E. Cummings was an American poet (as well as a playwright, painter, novelist, and lecturer) best known for his use of unusual punctuation, capitalization and grammar in his poems (to the extent that many people could tell you what a Cummings poem looks like, but far fewer could talk confidently about what any of his poems is about).
His name is sometimes rendered by others (including some of his publishers) as "e.e. cummings", in imitation of his style, but he himself preferred to punctuate his name the usual way.
