Abstract

This paper is aimed to give a detailed investigation of Noam Chomsky's minimalist approach to the interpretation of some selected poems by e.e Cummings. Specifically, the study will focus on three poems: "anyone who has ever lived in a pretty how town," "Maggie and milly and molly and May," and "somewhere beyond, I have never traveled, gladly. "" The study attempts to discover the underlying structural patterns, syntactic features, and semantic interpretations of these poems by applying the principles of linguistic minimalism, thereby, revealing new dimensions of e.e Cummings' poetic style and the complexity of language. The study employs linguistic theory to reinforce the literary analysis in search of new angles on the architectonic, semantic, and aesthetic characteristics of e.e Cummings' poetry, and therefore, contributes to the perception of linguistic minimalism and poetic display.
