From the publication of his Ballads of the Border in 1916, when he was in the National Guard serving on the Mexican Border, Hervey Allen has been a colorful figure among American writers. His war diary Toward the Flame was recognized as one of the most vivid of the American accounts of active service in France. His Israfel: The Life and Times of Edgar Poe was generally recognized as the definitive work on the subject. His several volumes of poetry have been widely praised.
