Can you really write a review for the entire output of one poet? Carl Sandburg represents America of the first half of the 20th century - industry, landscape, society - trust me, it is all in here. I tend to enjoy the smaller poems about weather or relationships, like "The Great Hunt," "Valley Song," "Offering and Rebuff" more than the longer poems about a place or event. Completely worth the time it takes to read through. I wanted to do that before visiting his house in Flat Rock, NC, which isn't far from where I live. Check!
