In the 1910s three poets found fame in Chicago: one who captured the dynamism of the city (Carl Sandburg), one who traveled the country’s roadways performing his verses (Vachel Lindsday), and one who exposed the hard truths of small towns (Edgar Lee Masters). Connecting them all was the Illinois landscape, the prairie that sang to the poet.
