Пользовательский отзыв - Dianne - Goodreads. Some of these are not so good. CARL SANDBURG (1878–1967) was twice awarded the Pulitzer Prize, first in 1940 for his biography of Abraham Lincoln and again in 1951 for Complete Poems. Before becoming known as a poet, he worked as a milkman, an ice harvester, a dishwasher, a salesman, a fireman, and a journalist. Among his classics are the Rootabaga Stories, which he wrote for his young daughters at the beginning of his long and distinguished literary career.

A collection of 77 new lyrical poems testifying to man's courage, frailty, and tenderness

The headline poem is what makes this worth it. But always interesting to see what else he wrote.

I read this book when it first came out as a young teen. I loved the subjects Sandburg made immortal in such expressive words. My favorite remains "Cahokia". The richness of the imagery and the honesty of sentiment remind me of long summers along the Mississippi River Palisades.

Carl Sandburg is a quintessential American from the "heartland," the Mid-West. He was born and raised in Illinois. He had a love-hate relationship with formal schooling; he did an assortment of laboring and service jobs that so often provide the real education into the dilemmas of life. It should be no surprise then that he found the life of another man of the heartland compelling: Abraham Lincoln. Sandburg earned the Pulitzer Prize for his outstanding biography of him (Lincoln: Sandburg). I've read that biography a number of years ago, and my 5-star review is posted at Amazon. At about the same time that I purchased the biography, in the `60's, I also purchased this work of poetry, for 50 cents back then, published by Harcourt, Brace and World, Inc. It has regrettably taken a long time to "crack the cover," and falls into the "better late than never" category.

There are 77 poems, covering both the human condition and the natural world. His is definitely a "man's voice", shaped by work such as that of a bricklayer and farm laborer. And it is gentle voice, sensitive to nuance and heartbreak. The publisher provided "strength in the bookends," that is, the first and last poem. This collection takes its title from the title to the first poem, which is a wonderful distillation of the elements to a life of love. Consider:

"Is the key to love in passion, knowledge, affection?
All three - along with moonlight, roses, groceries,
Giving and forgivings, gettings and forgettings,
Keepsakes and room rent,
Pearls of memory along with ham and eggs.

Sandburg goes on to admonish against try to lock love away, where it will "gather dust and mildew." That repeated admonition to live life to the fullest.

The last poem is entitled "Timesweep." It is a rich tribute to life itself, commencing with "I was born in the morning of the world." Eternal truths, uniquely expressed: "The make-up of vertebrates; the long highway of mammals who chew; Their victims and feed their children."

The range of his subject matter is impressive. One poem is entitled "Anecdote of Hemlock for Two Athenians," another is entitled "Forgotten Wars" and mentions names that once reverberated with meaning, but now draw blank stare: Cassino, Anzio, the Bulge."

He pays tribute to that great granary that is the Mid-West in "Harvest,"

"When the corn stands yellow in September
A red flower ripens and shines among the stalks
And a red silk creeps among the broad ears
And tall tassels life over all else...

Their fire
Light the west in November."

As with all poetry collections, a few can fall a bit flat. Still, overall, for this volume, 5-stars.

The Sandburg I know and think of is the SAndburg of poetry anthologies. It is the Sandburg of 'Chicago' and of 'Tell me if the lovers are the losers, in the tombs, the cool tombs'. The Sandburg I encounter in these poems does not resonate in the same way. There is a kind of panoramic intelligence, a search to be all- encompassing that is somehow too impersonal and too word-rich to deeply move. There are no individual faces and certainly no names but rather much collective experience and general definition.
I wish I had discovered more and many readers will and have, as Sandburg has long been one of America's most popular poets.

I can't tell you how many times I've delved into this book. My favorite Sandburg collection.

LIKE A SHARP KNIFE, THE POEMS THAT CARL SANDBURG CREATES IN THIS COLLECTION CUT STRAIGHT TO THE HEART OF WHAT HE WRITES ABOUT. HIS TAKE ON THE MANY ASPECTS OF LIFE ARE SPOT ON AND HIS WRITING CREATES A DEEP EMOTIONAL UNDERSTANDING OF LIFE AND LOVE. THIS COLLECTION SHOULD NOT BE MISSED AND SHOULD BE SHARED WITH ONE YOU LOVE.

Some of the greatest of his last poems. But what interests me is I bought a paperback copy of this collection of Sandburg back in 1967 published by Harcourt, Brace. Cost me at the time 50c. The cover is very different from the one presented here.
Carl Sandburg's Honey and Salt is a perfect work of poetic mastery. From cover to cover the reader is engrossed in deep thoughts and clever metaphors. This book is reccomended to anyone looking for a good read!
