    1. Dave on said:

      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 [...]

      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 more 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.

    6. Anna on said:

      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 sentim [...]

      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 Benét'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).

    10. Charles Sheard on said:

      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 more of a single note.

    11. Angie Bennett on said:

      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 more from Carl Sandburg.
