The Sweet Old Etcetera

"In the manner of a composer and librettist setting a classic text for an opera, Clifford deftly adapts the poetry of e.e. cummings - notorious for its visual and textual punning - to the Flash environment. The elegance of the visuals along with the evocative audio track evoke a child-like playfulness, and encourages the reader to play as well, as the interactivity is only deduced in the act of engagement. Clifford is careful with each poem of the suite she's curated, and she transports Cummings' poetry into a new hermeneutical dimension, suggesting in reverse the graphic and kinetic possibilities that are possible with the static print page." -- from Electronic Literature Collection, Volume 2
