Stephen Vincent Benet

Author Code: ASVB

Born: Jul. 22, 1898 - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA

Died: Mar. 13, 1943 - New York City, New York, USA

Educated at the Hitchcock Military Academy, the Albany Academy and Yale University, Benet took an early interest in poetry and began publishing while still at University. His first book appeared when he was only 17; Five Men and Pompey (1915) was well-received and convinced Benet to follow a career in literature. In 1921, he published his first novel, The Beginning of Wisdom, a semi-autobiographical work which was said to be influenced by the writing of F. Scott Fitzgerald. Benet went to France and studied at the Sorbonne. There he met his wife, Rosemary Carr, and they returned to America in 1923. He published Jean Hugenot (1923) and Spanish Bayonet (1926), before returning again to France where he lived for four years, and where he produced his most famous poem, the narrative John Brown's Body, which won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1929. That year he was also elected to the National Institute of Arts and Letters. In 1938, he was also elected to the American Institute of Arts and Letters. In 1937, he published a collection of short stories, Thirteen O'Clock, which included the now famous, and perhaps his most popular work, The Devil and Daniel Webster. Benet also worked as a screenwriter in Hollywood and made numerous radio broadcasts. In 1944, he was awarded his second Pulitzer Prize, posthumously, for his poem Western Star. His other works include The Drug-Shop (1917), Heavens and Earth (1920), The Ballad of William Sycamore (1923), Tiger Joy (1925), The Barefoot Saint (1929), James Shore's Daughter (1934), The Headless Horseman (1937), Tales Before Midnight (1939), Listen to the People (1941) and Nightmare at Noon (1942).
