Sandberg the Poetic Society Prize, and the novel The Beginning of Wisdom attracted critical attention. Married November 26, 1921 to Rosemary Carr, a talented writer from Chicago, Bene went through the 1920s to publish in periodicals to support a large family. Having mastered new means of expression, he revived the worn out patterns of commercial prose, giving free play to the imagination, and became seriously interested in American history. Best known for his stories from the collection The Devil and Daniel Webster (The Devil and Daniel Webster, 1937) and two large poems John Brown`s Body (John Brown`s Body, 1928) and Western Star (Western Star, 1943).
