Cornhuskers (Dover Thrift Editions)

Cornhuskers (Dover Thrift Editions) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Over 100 classic poems from Sandburg's second book, which came out two years after Chicago Poems (1916). Includes "Grass," "Prayers of Steel," "Flanders," "Prairie," "Shenandoah," many more. Introduction. Index of First Words.

Synopsis:

Poet, historian, folk singer, and man of the people, Carl Sandburg first burst onto the literary scene in 1916 with Chicago Poems. Filled with rhythms and images that could have come from the pen of Walt Whitman, the poems in that volume and his next one — Cornhuskers (1918) — won Sandburg a wide and devoted following. People responded to Sandburg's prairie voice, native optimism, and broad knowledge of, and empathy with, working-class people. Cornhuskers comprises over 100 poems, including the much-anthologized "Grass" ("Pile the bodies high at Austerlitz and Waterloo. / Shovel them under and let me work — / I am the grass; I cover all"), "Prayers of Steel", "Flanders", "Prairie", "Shenandoah", and many more. Sandburg fans, students, teachers, and poetry lovers everywhere will want to augment their personal libraries with this affordable new edition.

Synopsis:

Over 100 early Sandburg poems, including "Grass," "Prayers of Steel," "Flanders," "Prairie," "Shenandoah," others. Introduction. Index of First Words.
