THIRTEEN O'CLOCK by Stephen Vincent Benet


Email this review


Short stories, well-written and varied in theme and in interest. The now familiar The Devil and Daniel Webster, is included, with another in the same vein, -- Daniel Webster and the Sea Serpent, wherein he turns a sea serpent's passion for him to the benefit of America. There is a fantasy element in a number of them; and the philosophical undercurrent of most of them gives them their special value. Read The Sobbin' Women and A Death in the Country for the essential quality.
