Description About the author
Easton Press, Norwalk CT. 1994 Stephen Vincent Benet "John Brown's Body" Limited Edition. The Collector's Library of Famous Editions. Luxuriously bound in full genuine leather. A limited collector's edition with the original NOTES FROM THE ARCHIVES. Very Fine without any flaws.

One of the most widely read poems of our time, John Brown's Body is Stephen Vincent Benet s masterful retelling of the Civil War. A book of great energy and sweep, it swings into view the entire course of that terrible and decisive war, lighting up the lives of soldiers, leaders, and civilians, North and South, amidst the conflict. Generations of readers have found the book a compelling and moving experience. "Magnificently readable." New Statesman. "It is not one of your tours de forces of intellect and technique, to be admired and then tucked away on the library shelf. It is a library of storytelling itself, a poem extraordinarily rich in action as well as actors, vivid, varied, and so expressive of many men and moods that prose could never have carried its electric burden." Saturday Review. "A remarkable piece of imaginative reporting; and one in which not only the forces which make history are embodied in the speech and action of very diverse men and women but the ideas also of which these forces were the driving power." London Times Literary Supplement."
