    Sandburg, Carl

    Carl Sandburg (1878 – 1967) was an American writer who distinguished himself in the fields of poetry, history, biography, fiction, and music. He won two Pulitzer Prizes for his poetry – the first for Cornhuskers in 1919 and the second for his Complete Poems in 1950. According to one critic it was Sandburg who ‘put America on paper.’
