Abstract:

Presents a collection of poems by the beloved American author who, as a young man, travelled across the Midwest as a hobo. The surrealistic illustrations, which appear to be rendered in pastels, are appealing; the soft edges and warm tones work well with Sandburg's imaginary. The full-color illustrations are nothing short of breathtaking. Displays the range of everyday topics in which Sandburg found beauty, humor, or pathos. Unfamiliar words are helpfully defined in footnotes, 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.
