"Perhaps the finest collection of love letters in American literature."-John Hallwas,Journal Courier, Jacksonville, IL "This annotated collection of letters is an excellent volume for Sandburg aficionados, history buffs, those who appreciate a good love story-or all three."- -Jane Shealy,News Courier, Charleston, S.C. "One may read and appreciate the book for its scholarship and the cultural insights it offers on the pre-World War One era, but I suspect that most readers will delight in the emerging and appealing love story of Carl and Lilian. In our rather nihilistic age,The Poet and the Dream Girlacts as a kind of moral and philosophical tonic, making one believe again in all the possibilities for art, love, and social reform so passionately and beautifully espoused in these pages."-Dan Guillory,Illinois Books"The two have the heroic vitality of figures in a poem by Whitman. The wholehearted equality that comes rarely in most relationships seems to belong effortlessly to these lovers from the first. And what we feel is not amused, or contemptuous, or annoyed. What we feel is jealous." - Penelope Mesic,ChicagoADVANCE PRAISE "The letters of Steichen and Sandburg reveal their deep love for one another as well as their shared dedication to socialism. Most interesting is their very modern aspiration to unite both aspects into a genuine 'personal politics' of daily life. Students of American radical history will achieve rare insight into the arduous routine of the rank-and-file organizer. Scholars of women's history will locate a clearly articulated feminist desire for both intimacy and sexual liberation. Enjoyment is promised to all readers by the elegant prose and moving passages contained in this fine collection." - Mari Jo Buhle, author ofWomen and American Socialism, 1870-1920
