In the poem "Chicago" I believe that it is talking about the traits of
people in certain cities, and that anywhere you live, you will see all
different types of people. It shows the city as having people whom are
good, and some of which are not so good. But they are all connected in some

I think that Sandburg is using this poem to display the real difficulties
in life. A city that is usually portayed as aplace of glamour and good
times is portrayed in this poem as a harsh and unruly place to live. I
think sandburg is demonstrating to the reader that life isnt always what it

I believe that what this poem is trying to say is that it doesnt matter
what city you live in. As long as you except it flaws and you are proud of
the place you came from then it doesnt matter what other people think.In
the poem "Chicago", Sandburg wrote the poem as if he were talking to human

In the poem "Chicago" by Carl Sandburg, he is telling us about the city
Chicago. In each stanza he describes the different problems that go on in
the city life downtown. Sandburg writes as if Chicago is a living person.

“Chicago” according to Carl Sandburg is a place where there are things that
you should be proud of and other things you should not be proud of. In the
first stanza, Carl Sandburg shows that Chicago is a big city filled with
industries that are really important and shows a positive vibe about
Chicago. In the second stanza, it is filled with Chicago’s negativity like
crimes and immorality. In the third stanza, it shows that whatever obstacle
Chicago goes through it will strive to solve the problems and maintain to
be the Chicago that the people know.

This poem is about the urban city of Chicago. It uses alot of
personification in the way that Sandburg describes the city. He describes
the city in a very negative way, talking about robbers and murderers and
the big city life. The whole peom, he talks to Chicago as if it were a

"Chicago" by Carl Sandberg demonstrates Sandberg's respect and possible
fear of the city of Chicago. His use of apostrophe in this poem really
brings it to life. The use of adjectives also creates strong imagery and
reflection of Sandberg's outlook on the city.

In this poem by Carl Sandburg, he uses apostrophes to mock the cities flaws
like poverty and hunger. By reading this you think that the author is
criticizing Chicago, but he ends up saying how proud and honorable it is.
He states that there is no town that has this many problems and can still
be so famous and glamourous.

Chicago: I think that this poem was about how different people are. I also
think that it depends on were they are and who they are with in there
soroundings.I think that this poem was showing no matter were you are in
the would there in no place that is better or worse than Chicago.

This poem is quite interesting. It shows me how Sandburg portrays Chicago
in his own eyes. He describes it as a very hard city, yet it shows
patriotism. What he’s saying is that he really loves Chicago. He’s standing
up for his adored city, it’s very hearty.
