Poems for the People by Carl Sandburg

Book Description

Seventy-three poems from Sandburg's early years in Chicago, almost all of them never before in print. They show him as a critic of fast-changing conditions in urban America; a walker in the city; a sensitive poet born to immigrant parents. These poems are a reminder of why we revere Sandburg as an authentic American voice. Edited with an Introduction by George and Willene Hendrick, Sandburg's most accomplished interpreters. "An absolutely exhilarating read...a genuine literary event, a virtual rediscovery of an American treasure."-Michael Van Walleghen.
