Much like Illinois evolved from a rural society to an urban one, so did Illinois poetry. William Pack tells the remarkable stories of four significant poets while sharing some of their finest writing, including Vachel Lindsay, the Prairie Troubadour; Edgar Lee Masters and his Spoon River Anthology; Carl Sandburg, recognized as the voice of America; and Gwendolyn Brooks, who earned acclaim for her textured portraits of life in Bronzeville.
