A Street in Bronzeville
Gwendolyn Brooks was one of the most accomplished and acclaimed poets of the last century, the first black author to win the Pulitzer Prize and the first black woman to serve as poetry consultant to the Library of Congress--the forerunner of the U.S. Poet Laureate.
Here, in an exclusive Library of America edition, is her groundbreaking first book of poems, a searing portrait of Chicago's South Side.
"I wrote about what I saw and heard in the street," she later said. "There was my material."
- 1945 Gwendolyn Brooks
