KIRKUS REVIEW

In narrative verse, as in John Brown's Body, Stephen Vincent Benet gives the story and pattern of people and action in verse with sweep no prose could achieve. The spirit that is America is caught in his words. The ""story"" traces the beginnings in this country, -- Jamestown, Roanoke, Plymouth. The spirit of the old world, the groupings toward the new world -- both are here.
