Riassunto: Pulitzer Prizing author Stephen Vincent Benét's By the Waters of Babylon, is the first, most influential work of American post-apocalyptic fiction of the twentieth century. Its haunting story of a tribal priest who investigates the ruins of an ancient city is an unforgettable and challenging reminder of both the fragility of civilization and the hope for human development.
This volume also contains six other stories of ?Fantasy and Prophecy,? including The King of the Cats, a comic fable of human and animal transmutation, selected by the Library of America as one of the outstanding works of fantastic fiction in the past two centuries. The collection includes:
By the Waters of Babylon
The Curfew Tolls
The King of the Cats
Doc Mellhorn and the Pearly Gates
The Last of the Legions
The Blood of the Martyrs
