Stephen Vincent Benet was one of the most popular writers in the U.S. during
the first half of the 1900s. Some of his poems were considered part of the American
literary tradition. Although Benet was famous, most of the money he earned came from the stories
he wrote for popular magazines. The stories were light things, meant to be read
quickly and forgotten. Sometimes, Benet was not happy with the stories. But he did
not have time to make them better. He felt he had no choice but to work in this way. He had a wife and a child to support. All the while Benet was trying to please the magazine editors, he was thinking
about a new direction and a greater purpose for his writing. He wanted to bring to life
America’s history and heroes. He wanted people to remember the beauty and
goodness of the America he had seen as a boy. He began to experiment.
Benet’s new stories were about life in small towns. The voice telling the story
was not a modern voice. Instead, it was the voice of someone who had lived a long
time in the small town. The voice sounded wise. And the language was a little like
poetry. In 1926 Benet began to write a poem about American’s Civil War. The poem, called “John Brown’s Body,” was published in 1928. It was as long as a book and
praised for its power and truth. It was so filled with color and details that professors of
history used it to teach their students about the War. It was read on American and
British radio. The year after it was published, Benet received America’s Pulitzer prize
for poetry. 11. Benet became famous in his early years as a ___________. A. popular writer B. poetry teacher
