    By the Waters of Babylon is a really well written story with so many effects going into the theme I was also impressed with how well thought out it was and how many clues there were to what was going on At first I didn't get that ASHING was George wASHINGton and I didn't understand why the main character was so obsessed with food in a jar But now I get it The nuclear bombs can't grow food too poisonous That's why they only eat meat and good hunters are so important And I also think that the uest the priests go on they all go to the place where the main character did They do that so that someone in each generation will know why it's important not to become too knowledgeable like the people who were destroyed I was just really impressed

    I think I read this story in 8th grade or that was at least the first time I heard about it What I love about this story is how well Benet convinces you in the beginning that you are reading a story from an ancient time as opposed to what the story really is a story set in the future in which an asteroid or nuclear attack has destroyed our cities infrastructure and population Benet’s word choice gives us the sense of a primitive people and in a sense they are because human history has been nearly lost The people fear the Dead Places which were laden with radiation—even though they don’t have that kind of word or even the knowledge to understand that word Overall I like the post apocalyptic feel to it and how in the end the main character decides to start slowly rebuilding society The twist in this story is so great and if you discover it on your own before the end of the story the payoff is even better Again word choice and phrasing are important to the success of the story and once the ending is revealed the class could write about or talk about the importance of word choice in order to achieve a desired effect This story reminds me of “Body Rituals Among the Nacirema” which is one anthropologist’s take on Nacirema or American if spelled forwards culture Word choice in that article gives us the sense that these “Nacirema” are a backwards people when in fact the author is pointing out common tendencies in American culture I think that would be a good follow up reading because it further emphasizes word choice and the idea of how we can and maybe should distance ourselves from our culture in order to analyze it Again here is a story that students may not like even though I think no one would argue that this story isn’t age appropriate Also if it is not in an anthology I would have to print it out or have students read it off their tabletsprovided they have those Another issue is that once again I have talked about a story written by a Dead White Male I think I need to expand the scope of what I read so that what I bring into the class can excite students

    Good job Benét good job I find it very hard to believe that someone that lived over 100 years ago could go into so much detail describing something that hasn't happened today At first I thought this was a simple children's tale warning us that curiosity sometimes gets the best of us After reading it a few times I finally got just how powerful and poetic this short tale is Benét tells the tale of John a young man living in what seems to be a primitive society They follow arbitrary rules while John agrees with very few of them As he sets out in a journey to become a priest his father warns him of what they call the Dead Places I know the name gives it an ominous feel to it but that couldn't be further from the truth He breaks their ultimate rule by heading to the Place of the Gods which we later discover to be view spoilera post apocalyptic New York City hide spoiler

    By the Waters of Babylon is a post apocalyptic short story written in 1937 That's right a post apocalyptic story made before the A bombs were dropped and even before World War II even started The book is very much ahead of its time and I respect it for that However judging it purely on entertainment value the book fails It follows a young man as he enters the forbidden Place of the Gods which we soon discover is a bombed city It seems that finding out that it takes place in the future is supposed to be a big surprise and for the time I suppose that it might have been but it just seems obvious to the modern reader Again By the Waters of Babylon was genius for the time it was written but now it just seems generic

    I read this in the morning of the day people are to gather all over the world to move world leadership to stop the destruction of the world's climate and at the end of a week in which Congress voted again to go to war Stephen Vincent Benet was a prophet and this is his lamentation Let us pray with it

    Great first person descriptions of a post apocalyptic world where our everyday world is described from the perspective of someone unfamiliar with itThe human uest for knowledge is sometimes dangerous but cannot be extinguished

    Benet had me for about three pages thinking that this was about an ancient place But I was able to infer that these people were actually living in a post apocalyptic world and the forbidden city of the dead the young priest visited was New York City His great revelation was that these people were men and not gods as he had been taught This is the truth but the Priest decides not to share the whole truth People were forbidden from traveling east or going to the dead city for a reason If you eat too much truth at once you may die of the truthPerhaps in the old days they ate knowledge too fastThere are other stories like this butTHIS WAS WRITTEN IN 1937 He describes the war as the Great Burning in which fire fell from the sky and the ground was poisoned for years

    Thanks to my 9th and 11th grade English teacher Mr Bob Schevchik for having us read brilliant science fiction He had us read a ton of short stories If you haven't read any SS since high school or college run to the library When well done they are priceless

    What else can be said about this amazing story by Stephen Vincent Benet Even though at the start it may be hard to understand and you might often get confused by what it happening this story is one of the best you will ever read as it perfectly portrays what a post apocalyptic world would look like and it will always have you wanting to find out and as the story develops This story focuses on the main character and narrator John who goes on an journey to finally fulfill what he has wanted all of his life view spoiler to become a priest hide spoiler
