“It’s a story they tell in the border country, where Massachusetts joins Vermont and New Hampshire.”*
Hailed as an instant classic when published in the The Saturday Evening Post in 1936, “The Devil and Daniel Webster” by Stephen Vincent BenÃ©t stands in the front ranks of great American short stories. Â A hard-luck New Hampshire farmer sells his soul to the Devil and then in contrition enlists the help of Daniel Webster, ” .. the Union’s stay and New Hampshires pride…” to win it back in trail. Â The Devil summons a judge and jury of the worst criminals and traitors from our history, and Webster must convince them to set free their fellow man. Â Can he? Â The verdict is a testament ofÂ Stephen Vincent BenÃ©t’s deep faith in the flawed beauty of the American journey.
