Biography
Hervey Allen (1889-1949), born William Hervey Allen, is best known for his 1933 novel, Anthony Adverse, which was made into a feature film. A veteran of WWI, Allen began his literary career as a poet while recovering from being gassed while in combat. His best known poem, "The Blindman", was published in "North American Review" in 1919, but as Allen was becoming a major poet (1920), he retreated from his fame and almost entirely gave up writing poetry during the 1930s. His other noted works include a series of historical novels, The Disinherited, about Colonial America. He completed three volumes in the series, The Forest and the Fort (1943), Bedford Village (1944) and Toward the Morning (1948), and Allen also wrote Israfel (1926), a biography of Edgar Allan Poe.
