A recent death in the family prompted me to examine my life to see what I should be doing differently. The answer, one of them anyway, was I should be reading more poetry. So I got this little gem of a book from Amazon and read it through. Carl Sandburg was a master and one of the old time American poets who spoke simply and directly so that each of us could clearly understand. Fog is a typical example: The fog comes in on little cat feet. It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches and then moves on. Wow! If that sounds like great writing it is because it is. I wish I could write a poem like that and I wish Chicago Poems would out sell my own poem book because it has so much more to offer.

How can ya go wrong here!
The greatest debut in 20th century poetic history for 80 cents? WOW WOW WOW!
When this came out in '16 there was no fresher voice than Sandburg's, and it's still a fresh voice today! Sandburg's phrasing and imagery are so stark and lovely I can even forgive his annoying and naive Socialism (which isn't that strong here, anyway).
Read it and you'll never forget it.

An AMAZING anthology of this great poet's work. The poem "To a Contemporary Bunkshooter" is more timely today than when it was written. Powerful, awesome, and wonderful.

Hey There You Out There, Read This 31. Mai 2000

"humming and thrumming" 23. Juli 2001
Von Cipriano - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
In my reading of poetry I have developed a peculiar habit. In the Table Of Contents I pencil in an asterisk before the titles of poems that I especially enjoyed. I find that this helps me to quickly relocate special poems later when I want to re-read them. In my copy of Sandburg's "Chicago Poems" there are many asterisks. I think that one of the things that appeal to me about these particular series of poems is their "urbanity". As the title suggests, these are often poems about "city"... about the "cosmopolis". Sandburg had a way of animating concrete and asphalt, and making us aware of the inner life of things that millions of us urbanites walk past each day. In one of my favorites entitled "Skyscraper" he says "It is the men and women, boys and girls so poured in and out all day that give the building a soul of dreams and thoughts and memories." And it ends beautifully with "By night the skyscraper looms in the smoke and the stars and has a soul." It is as though if any of Sandburg's Chicago Poems were to just remain silent for a moment, we would hear the faint night-time "humming and thrumming" of "a copper wire slung in the air." (cf. his Under A Telephone Pole).
He writes with a solemnity that avoids being morose, which is refreshing. But take note... "you will be thwarted every time, you try to catch a Sandburg rhyme." (they never rhyme). As for metre, his poems are in a free-verse very much reminiscent of Walt Whitman. The perfect poetry to read while feeding the pigeons, or otherwise commuting to and from the park.

You Owe It To Yourself ... 31. August 2000
Von Jane - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
When such a quantity of beautiful and profound poems comes along at such a ludicrously low price, you owe it to yourself to get it. Carry this book in your work bag, take it on the bus, and get a daily dose of Carl Sandburg, the Lowry of poetry, with his word-paintings of factories, immigrants, war, socialism, prostitution and so on. Buy it for a friend or donate it to a fellow passenger! Wonderful ...

A Beautiful Picture of Humanity and of Chicago 6. September 2012
Von Robert Pruitt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Chicago Poems, by Carl Sandburg, is an amazing collection of poetry.

Mr friend Janeen recently visited Chicago and took some brilliant photos. After looking at them, I felt as if I was there. Though I have never been to Chicago, the reality of the place was clearly and beautifully presented in her photography.

This is the case with Chicago Poems as well. In Chicago poems, Carl Sandburg snaps beautiful and poetic pictures of Chicago and her people. We get a glimpse of humanity and travel back in time to old Chicago. In reading Sandburg's verse, we get the sense that we have fully experienced Chicago frozen in time. We encounter its people and its rich culture as the poetry unfolds.

The poetry and the imagery are simply astounding. This is one of my all time personal favorites.

I highly recommend Chicago Poems to any lover of poetry, lover of "people watching" through history, or any lover of the "Windy City."

worth much more than what you pay 2. Juli 2001
Von adead_poet@hotmail.com - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Sandburg is one of the greatest poets the US has had, so much that he became an American icon. His poems use a language that everyone can understand and he speaks of subjects that we all know. He is one of the finest poets we've ever had, and to be able to get this collection for around a dollar, you'd have to be a fool to pass on this.
