Vachel Lindsay. Vachel Lindsay (), American "folk" poet, is best known for his poems about Johnny Appleseed and for "The Congo, " which uses syncopated jazz rhythms. Vachel Lindsay was born in Springfield, Ill. He studied at Hiram College in Ohio, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the New York School of Art. He lived as a modern-day. Vachel Lindsay, in full Nicholas Vachel Lindsay, (born Nov. 10, , Springfield, Ill., U.S.—died Dec. 5, , Springfield), American poet who—in an attempt to revive poetry as an oral art form of the common people—wrote and read to audiences compositions.

Vachel Lindsay, together with Langston Hughes, helped define the school of Jazz Poetry in the first decades of the 20th century. So-called because of the syncopated or bluesy rhythms the verse borrowed from the music of the era, the tradition evolved with Hughes into a practice of pitching verse in conjunction with musicians. The Congo is one of the best-known poems by American poet Vachel Lindsay (). It was revolutionary in its use of sounds and rhythms — as sounds and rhythms — and includes elaborate annotations to guide its spoken performance. Lindsay categorized The Congo as “higher Vaudeville” and was famous for his exuberant performances of it.

It is a commonplace assumption among readers of modern poetry that "The Congo" is a fundamentally racist poem, and Lindsay a racist author. These are the conclusions of book reviewer Elizabeth Hardwick, for example, who notes a number of the poem's overtly racist statements in support of the conclusion that "'The Congo' is the supreme folly of Lindsay's foolhardy career" (10).   Singing poetry: Jim Dickinson reads "The Congo" by Vachel Lindsay Birdman Records’ David Katznelson writes: World Boogie Is Coming: If you were ever fortunate enough to get a letter or package from legendary record man Jim Dickinson (Novem – Aug ), it would end with those four words.
