Book Description

The Chicago Poems by Carl Sandburg, with active table of contents.
"The Chicago Poems represent Sandburg's attempts to found an American version of social realism, writing expansive verse in praise of American agriculture and industry. All of these tendencies are manifest in "Chicago" itself. Then, as now, the city of Chicago was a hub of commodities trading, and a key financial center for agricultural markets. The city was also a center of the meat-packing industry, and an important railroad hub; these industries are also mentioned in the poem." - Wikipedia

1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Edition badly formatted September 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sandburg's Chicago Poems are a magnificent work, and I was pleased to find them in a Kindle edition. Unfortunately, this version is poorly formatted. Table of Contents is not coded as such, so you can't navigate to it from the Kindle's Go-to button. Body text is in a heavy bold font, rather than the standard Kindle body font. Line breaks are at inappropriate places. There should be a page break after each poem, but instead the poems are run together. It is a shame that Amazon allows such sloppy coding in the Kindle version of great works such as this one.
