    question for my poetry group

    I wish to find out if any writer prior to e.e.cummings jammed words together or separated parts of words to produce a poem?

    Acrostics, where words are separated by letter have been around for hundreds of years if you'd include them- Lewis Carroll, for instance, used the form.
