Young Adventure, a Book of Poems

Author: Stephen Vincent Benet

Biographical Note:

Stephen Vincent Bene’t (22 July 1898 - 13 March 1943) was from a family with roots in Florida, which explains the Spanish name. Although born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, his father was a colonel in the U.S. Army,
and hence he grew up in California and Georgia. He attended Yale starting in 1915 and that same year published his first book of poems,
`Five Men and Pompey’. `Young Adventure’ (1918) is considered his first mature book of poetry, and he went on to win two Pulitzer Prizes,
in 1929 for `John Brown’s Body’ and in 1944 for `Western Star’.

It appears that the whole family had great talents, as his grandfather was a Brigadier General, his father a Colonel, and both Stephen and his brother William Rose Benet won Pulitzer Prizes for poetry.
