Collection of free verse poems written and signed by Pulitzer Prize winning author Carl Sandburg. The poet Carl Sandburg was born into poverty in 1878. After working odd jobs and studying at Lombard College, he moved to Chicago and became a writer for the Chicago Daily News. Sandburg gained fame as a poet for his unadorned, uncomplicated yet poignant style of poetry. As biographer Richard Crowder notes, Sandburg, "had been the first poet of modern times actually to use the language of the people as his almost total means of expression" (from Poetry Foundation).
