Carl Sandburg mastered both poetry and prose, something to do with him being a journalist. I find him very readable.

I must agree with Michael Walker: Sandburg is still underrated. I fell in love with Sandberg at 17 when my dad recited the first stanza of Chicago to me from memory. He had memorized it about 30 years earlier in high school. He also won a Pulitzer Prize for his 3 volume biography about Abraham Lincoln. The beauty of his prose, in my opinion, is how the poet shows through on every page. His skill in using just the right word to express his ideas was beyond brilliant.

I think that Carl Sandburg is still underrated, compared to other American poets. His thoughts roam freely, impelled by a vivid imagination. In such a large number of poems, some are much better than others, as you would expect.

Carl Sandburg was also a journalist, which shows in his poetry. He writes long lines, which border on prose, but they are poetry. He is the highly imaginative poet of Chicago first and foremost. Sandburg never seems to repeat himself, and finds plenty of topics to write about. I never tire of reading his poems.
