Overview

       When City of Discontent  was first published, it bore the subtitle
        "An interpretive biography of Vachel Lindsay, being also the story
        of Springfield, Illinois, USA, and of the love of the poet for that city,
        that state, and that nation." But the book is, like Carl Sandburg's
        Lincoln, not so much a biography as a poetic interpretation of
        the life of one of the state's leading poets of the first half of the
        century.
      "A lively, swift-moving, sympathetic story of a man who deserves
        to be remembered. . . . A book people will enjoy, and suffer over, and
        not soon forget."
        — Library Journal
