Carl Sandburg, born on January 6, 1878, in Galesburg, Illinois, was a noted American poet, writer, and editor. His body of work spanned many genres, and he left an indelible mark on American literature through his insightful, evocative writings.

Sandburg is perhaps best known for his collection "Chicago Poems" (1916), which celebrates the vitality and complexity of the American urban experience. His distinctive free verse style, mingling lyrical, humorous, and somber tones, proved influential in modern American poetry. In addition to his poetry, Sandburg made significant contributions as a biographer. His exhaustive, six-volume biography of Abraham Lincoln, for which he won the Pulitzer Prize in History, remains a touchstone in Lincoln studies. Although he had only an eighth-grade education, Sandburg's writings demonstrate a keen intellect and profound understanding of the human experience. He was known for his lifelong commitment to social justice, influenced by his early years as a laborer and journalist.
