Overview

This early work by Stephen Vincent Benét was originally published in 1937 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'The Devil and Daniel Webster' is a short story about a successful lawyer who believes you can win your soul back from the devil. Stephen Vincent Benét was born on 22nd July 1898 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, United States. Benét was an accomplished writer at an early age, having had his first book published at 17 and submitting his third volume of poetry in lieu of a thesis for his degree. During his time at Yale, he was an influential figure at the 'Yale Lit' literary magazine, and a fellow member of the Elizabethan Club. Benét was also a part-time contributor for the early Time Magazine. Benét's best known works are the book-length narrative poem American Civil War, John Brown's Body (1928), for which he won a Pulitzer Prize in 1929, and two short stories, The Devil and Daniel Webster (1936) and By the Waters of Babylon (1937). Benét won a second Pulitzer Prize posthumously for his unfinished poem Western Star in 1944.

THE TRIAL BY JURY WAS TO HAVE BEEN AN OVER- WHELMING VICTORY FOR THE DEVIL ! DANIEL WEBSTER'S WORDS MADE EVEN THE MOST VILE OF CHARACTERS ON THE JURY PANEL 'SEE' HOW VERY DIFFERANT THEIR LIVES WOULD HAVE BEEN - IF THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN GIVEN A 'SECOND CHANCE' !

I read this book in my 8th grade class. I thought it was very good and had an interesting plot. I recommended it for people of every age. It teaches some very valuable lessons.
