About the Author

A poet, dramatist, and short story writer, Stephen Vincent Benet was born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, in 1898 and attended Yale University. A Guggenhein Fellowship in 1926 enabled him to work in Paris on a long poem that appeared two years later and received the Pulitzer Prize for poetry (1928). mostrar mais The poem John Brown's Body brought Benet instant popularity. This narrative history of the Civil War in rhyme and blank verse told from the point of view of ordinary people of both the North and the South is a remarkable epic of the United States. Although Benet had enormously influential on other poets, notably the Harlem Renaissance writer Anne Spencer, and despite his wide popular audience, he has not received high praise from academic critics. Benet died in 1943. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

"Enfin, ma chère, demanda Mme Calvet un peu émue, vous n'allez pas me dire... une queue ?"
Comment ne pas poursuivre une nouvelle qui commence ainsi ?

Never going to read this, but the $10 purchase from Wm James Books in Port Townsend is well justified by the John Steuart Curry illustrations.

This is one I don't recall, except rembering I enjoyed it.

For greatness to be, the time as well as the man must be right. The right man in the wrong time--and perhaps history is written differently.
