Robert Penn Warren has distinguished himself in many areas of endeavor—as a poet, a novelist, a critic, and an observer of American history and politics. In this book, John Burt examines Warren’s writings in these apparently disparate fields and shows how they are tied together not only by their common themes but also by an inner logic that captures the analogies between artistic and political problems.

"This fine critical study is the product of sound scholarship and a discriminating and probing mind."óJames H. Justus, Indiana University
