Bas-Relief by Carl Sandburg

Carl August Sandburg was a poet, biographer, writer and editor. He won two Pulitzer Prizes for his poetry and one for his biography of Abraham Lincoln. As a major figure of American literature, Lyndon B Johnson at Sandburg’s death in 1967 said ‘Carl Sandburg was more than the voice of America, more than the poet of its strength and genius. He was America.’
