(From the publisher):
One of the most widely read poems of our time, John Brown's Body is Stephen Vincent Benet's masterful retelling of the Civil War. A book of great energy and sweep, it swings into view the entire course of that terrible and decisive war, lighting up the lives of soldiers, leaders, and civilians, North and South, amidst the conflict.
