Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 054801423X, Hardcover)

In 1913, after several years of tramping about the country and writing poetry, Lindsay published "General William Booth Enters into Heaven," in the fourth issue of Poetry. The poem, a tribute to the founder of the Salvation Army, brought him instant fame. The Review of Reviews praised it as "perhaps the most remarkable poem of a decade." In his column for Harper's, William Dean Howells called it a "fine brave poem."
