Carl Sandburg’s Chicago

By Kenneth Rainey. Filed under: TweedBlog.

I’ve recently picked up a copy of the complete poems of Carl Sandburg. It’s beautiful stuff, eloquent and compassionate. Aside from his epic multivolume biography of Abraham Lincoln, he’s probably best remembered for this poem.

The work is read by Roy Trumbull.
