Robert Penn Warren, America's first Poet Laureate, penned one of the most widely read works in American literature with the Pulitzer Prize-winning All the King's Men. An unrivaled novel of American politics, Warren's masterpiece is a classic tale every bit as relevant today as it was upon its release more than 50 years ago.

The fictionalized account of Louisiana's colorful and notorious governor, Huey Pierce Long, All the King's Men follows the startling rise and fall of Willie Stark, a country lawyer in the Deep South of the 1930s. Beset by political enemies, Stark seeks aid from his right-hand man, Jack Burden, who will bear witness to the cataclysmic unfolding of this very American tragedy.

    " I thought this book was extremely well written, but I had to read this book for school. I don't agree with reading this book because I have no idea why the characters respond to certain things the way they do because I have no experience in that area. Especially the adult romance etc. "

    " An American tragedy. I had a hard time getting into the run on sentences, but once past that, I really enjoyed the story. Well done. "

    " I chose to read this book because it was recommended to me by my parents. Out of the three recent books I have read (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Ox-Bow Incident, and All the King's Men) I rate this as my second favorite book. What i liked about this book was how the author wrote about topics that are relative to today's world; such as power and politics. What i disliked about this book was that the ending was that there were not many twists thrown in to bring extra suspense for the readers. I would recommend this book to adults or college students.
