Although Carl Sandburg's poetry was distinctly American, his work transcended borders. He received this Swedish award in 1959. The son of Swedish immigrants, Sandburg's first language was Swedish. As a child in Illinois, Sandburg changed in his name from "Sandberg" to the more Americanized "Sandburg" when he entered grammar school.
