HENRY HOLT AND COMPANY:
"In his ability to concentrate a whole story or picture or character within the compass of a few lines, Mr. Sandburg's work compares favorably with the best achievements of American poets. It is, however, distinguished by its trenchant note of social criticism and by its vision of a better social order."
"Carl Sandburg has the unassailable and immovable earthbound strength of a great granite rock which shows a weather-worn surface above the soil."
JOHN T. FREDERICK:
"When [students] study the growth of humanity in the twentieth century, they will read Carl Sandburg's Chicago Poems."
"He has worked his vengeance; from the cinders and ashes, glowing still, rise sparks, brilliant and tiny."
"No writer in America is so hard and soft-speaking; beneath the brutality, he is possibly the tenderest of living poets."
