Walt Whitman and Carl Sandburg - two men from different sections of the country, from different centuries - have captured the heart of life. They have sung bravely the songs which guide men to the best of life. They saw the good in the evil, and they were willing to accept the evil so that they might have its good. But they were not content to lot the evil remain - the evil of man's inhumanity to man must be abolished. The two poets have taken the powerful medium of poetry and with steady words and strong sentences they have called man to his destiny.
