Though praised as a jewel-like masterpiece after its publication in 1921, Madame Margot, when first told to a 1908 Charleston, South Carolina, audience was called shocking, "unfit" for ladies and lurid and revolting trash.

When John Bennett first heard the tale from ex-slaves who saw the work of the devil in the magical fable, he knew he had found something lovely and strange, unique in the annals of American Folklore
