The Lyric Self offers a precise and thorough examination of Zen, based on classical and contemporary scholarly works as well as the authoras personal experience. Eight themes that are common to the practice of Zen Buddhism and the poetry of E.E. Cummings are compared and explored, with an emphasis on their respective value to contemporary psychology and education. It is the premise of The Lyric Self that both Zen and Cummingsa poetry are profoundly concerned with individual awareness, and that they both employ an unorthodox use of words to break through the static structures of conventional language and thought.silence .is a looking bird:the turn ing;edge, of life (inquiry before snow #40 in 95 Poems Norman Friedman provides insightful observation ... is a persistent pattern of withdrawal, this should not be seen as a problem, and can be indicative of a healthy creative process. ... childhood. these children singing in stone a silence of stone these little children wound with stone flowers opening for ever these silentlyanbsp;...
