Chicago Poems
Carl Sandburg
Chicago Poems (1916) was Carl Sandburg's first published book of verse. Written in the poet's unique, personal idiom, these poems embody a soulfulness, lyric grace and a love of and compassion for the common man that earned Sandburg a reputation as a poet of the people.

Among the dozens of poems in this collection are such well-known verses as Chicago, Fog, To a Contemporary Bunkshooter, Who Am I? and Under the Harvest Moon, as well as numerous others on themes of war, immigrant life, death, love, loneliness and the beauty of nature. These early poems reveal the simplicity of style, honesty and vision that characterized all of Sandburg's work and earned him enormous popularity in th e1920s and 30s and a Pulitzer Prize in 1951.
