A lavish offering of 33 of Sandburg's shorter poems, part of the Poetry for Young People series (see Bagert, above). Selections such as "Fog," "Arithmetic," "Phizzog," "Doors," and "Jazz Fantasia" display the range of everyday topics in which Sandburg found beauty, humor, or pathos. "A Homely Winter Idyl" is included as an example of one of his infrequent departures from free verse, and "Skyscraper" gives readers a taste of what the poet could do with a longer form. Following series format, unfamiliar words are helpfully defined in footnotes (though there is no word on the derivation of"phizzog" from "physiognomy"), and an introductory biographical essay establishes a context for the poems. Arcella makes a grand debut; his intensely colored sculptural forms, carved from dramatic shadows, have a distinctly '30s look to them: the firm-jawed stalwart in overalls and bill cap opposite "Young Sea" and the construction worker standing atop the solid steel beams of an unfinished skyscraper might have come straight off solidarity posters. (Kirkus Reviews)
Presents a collection of poems by the beloved American author who, as a young man, travelled across the Midwest as a hobo.
