Selected Poems

Передняя обложка
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 1996 - Всего страниц: 285
This new collection of Sandburg's poetry, which includes four previously unpublished Lincoln poems, contains selections from all of Sandburg's previous volumes and certainly supports MacLeish's confidence in the breadth of Sandburg's scope. In more than 150 poems, arranged in eleven sections - from Chicago to Poems of Protest to Lincoln to Anti-War Poems to Poet of the People - readers can see what Sandburg was made of and, in turn, what the poet thought the American people were made of.

Об авторе (1996)

CARL SANDBURG (1878-1967) was twice awarded the Pulitzer Prize, first in 1940 for his biography of Abraham Lincoln and again in 1951 for Complete Poems. Before becoming known as a poet, he worked as a milkman, an ice harvester, a dishwasher, a salesman, a fireman, and a journalist. Among his classics are the Rootabaga Stories, which he wrote for his young daughters at the beginning of his long and distinguished literary career.
