Mid-American Chants. Sherwood Anderson.

Mid-American Chants.

New York: John Lane Company, 1918. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Very Good copy with foxing to the boards and preliminary pages with toning to the spine lacking the dust jacket. MID-AMERICAN CHANTS is Sherwood Anderson's first and only book of poems. Undeniably influenced by Walt Whitman, Anderson seeks in this collection to sing of the "heart" (geographically) of the United States, and to sing of the rising age of industrialism. The lines are long, and the rhythms almost prosaic almost prototypical American prose poems. Item #27082
