REVIEW Abraham Lincoln The Prairie Years The War Years One Volume Edition

REVIEW Ô Abraham Lincoln The Prairie Years The War Years One Volume Edition He Prairie Years and The War Years distills Sandburg's monumental six volume set into a single one book edition By gleaning every possible reference from history literature and popular lore Sandburg successfully captures not only the legendary pres. I ve been reading a lot this year and the books I pore over the disgruntled I become It was in reading this book strangely that I realized the possible cause the range of narrative voice employed by authors especially contemporary literary ones is extremely limited The opening few pages of Sandburg s second of three volumes on Lincoln reads like his poetry which reads a lot like Whitman s poetry It is flowing free and expansive lyrical The rest reads like a history book which is fair that s what the book is intended to be after all The fact that I was hoping for something else something subjective and poetic an unabashed mythologization of Lincoln but not so unabashed as to have him slaying vampires is irrelevant Why are there so few eccentric and distinct narrators Perhaps it is the mark of an immature reader to even want one When I compile a list of some of the best examples works by Hunter Thompson Mark Twain The Catcher in the Rye it seems that it is the same list likely to be found in the favorites of avid readers aged 15 21 I don t believe that though Poets have often write in distinct voices and are not denigrated for the strategy and that is telling in a way Poetry is reliant on rhythm and rhythm is what truly gives a narrative voice its identity I suspect that the problem is in who reads and who decides what is published and how The support base for literary texts is very narrow I imagine this is based on no hard evidence and barely any soft evidence Educated probably Upper middle class and above probably Based on those two factors alone additional racial regional and cultural profiling could be extrapolated based on the various and marked ineualities that exist along those linesBack to Sandburg s biography of Lincoln it isn t written with the flare I expected from one of America s better poets and from what I ve read on the internet the best place to find facts it is not the most reliable account of its subject Maybe read the first 4 or 5 pages and then go see the movie in which the 16th president of the United States plays poker with the undead

REVIEW Ô Abraham Lincoln The Prairie Years The War Years One Volume Edition Civil War and history buffs as well as all lovers of fine writing will delight in the detail and accuracy of Carl Sandburg's definitive best known biography of Honest Abe Representing a lifetime of study by the great American poet Abraham Lincoln T. It is easy to see why Carl Sandburg s account of Abraham Lincoln is so beloved since it focuses so much on Lincoln the folk hero I enjoyed this book a lot though its style kind of a Thomas Wolfe rip off got on my nerves after a whileTwo Lincoln anecdotes I highlighted which give a good sense of the book s toneProtests of innocence often came from men plainly guilty They reminded Lincoln of a governor who visited a state prison The convicts one by one had the same story of innocence and of wrongs done them At last the governor came to one who frankly said he had committed a crime and the sentence given him was perfect justice I must pardon you said the governor I can t have you here corrupting all these good men AndSix days after the Fort Pillow massacre Lincoln spoke at a Sanitary Fair reminded his Balti soldiers that in looking out on so many people assembled to serve the Union soldiers the fact was that three years earlier the same soldiers could not so much as pass through Balti We all declare for liberty but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing With some the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself and the product of his labor while with others the same word may mean for some men to do as they please with other men and the product of other men s labor The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep s throat for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as a liberator while the wolf denounces his for the same act as a destroyer of liberty especially as the sheep was a black one Plainly the sheep and the wolf are not agreed upon the definition of the word liberty and precisely the same difference prevails today among us human creatures even in the North and all professing to love liberty

    EBOOK or KINDLE (Abraham Lincoln The Prairie Years The War Years One Volume Edition) AUTHOR Carl Sandburg This is a biography of Lincoln by the esteemed poet Carl Sandburg I was born just up the road US Route 34 in Kewanee from his home town of Galesburg Illinois Thus I have always had a soft spot for this version of Lincoln's life As a poet Sandburg's version tends to be epic and mythical and less critical in its examination of Lincoln For all of that the book still works well The first part The Prairie Years recounts Lincoln's you
