  • Carl Sandburg January 6, 1878 July 22, 1967 in 1919 was one of the second recipients of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry for his collection Cornhuskers The collection is divided into several sections including Cornhuskers Persons Half Known Leather Leggings Haunts and Shenandoah Each of the sections has its own feel to it and the poems range from the long Prairie and The Four Brothers which bookend the entire collection, to the very short, such as Cartoon The subject or the poems also contrasts, th [...]


  • This is honest, hard working, down to earth poetry He celebrates the ordinary working people, and the lyricism and the rhythm swing to an industrial, instead of post industrial beat Some poems i love, some I don t like, but I learn from all of them Some of the shorter satires are beautiful and devastating It makes a nice, short break from the rest of life.


  • I do love Carl Sandburg and I love so many of his poems What a wonderful person he was I think he left earth giving much than he took and humanity was better for it.


  • A beautiful day, a cup of coffee on the porch and a collection of accessible poems, 1919 Pulitzer Prize winning poems.Poet Carl Sandburg s poems of kings and soldiers war should be read today


  • I adored the opening poem So colorful The vast majority of the book was okay The last poem was a favorite of mine too I definitely prefer his lengthy poetry.


  • There is something beautifully sparse in the way Sandburg writes his language is stripped down, straightforward and free of frills While there are some issues with certain poems in this collection the usage of the word nigger certainly sits ill with us modern readers it is overall a beautiful collection that paints a picture of both the vastness of the world and of its humbler details Sandburg s love of the wide open spaces of the world is as clear and as evident as his anti war sentiment in the [...]


  • I attended Carl Sandburg Jr High School and read a few of his poems then, but this is the first time I spent any real time with his works I enjoyed some of the poems and others, not so much This may have been because this book was part of a collection of Pulitzer Prize winners which I read on kindle It was difficult to navigate through the book so I read it straight through, which is not how I normally read poetry.


  • I d be first to admit that I m not much of an expert on poetry That being said, I really don t understand how this book won a Pulitzer Virtually none of the poems here with one or two exceptions speak to me in any significant way I prefer poetry that presents ideas rather than creates beautiful imagery Especially when that imagery pertains to corn Plus, there s no less poeteic word to me than the n word, which Sandburg seems to have a fixation with.


  • Fans of Whitman will be immediately taken with this, and it reminded me also of Ben t s Western Star, from the perspective of celebrating American spirit and history The final poem, Four Brothers, is just an amazing portrait of WWI here on Bartleby, by the way bartleby 134 103ml.


  • At its best when Sandburg paints with the same voice from his earlier Chicago Poems His poems of WWI are to me less effective, and of a single note.


  • The poems contained in the Shenandoah segment are powerful and beautiful and sad This collection of poetry is wonderful.



  • Excellent book, did not enter my heart the same way Chicago Poems did.Looking forward to reading from Carl Sandburg.
