All the King's Men: A Symposium

Excerpt

Number Three in the Carnegie Series in English consists of seven papers by members of the Department of English on Robert Penn Warren's All the King's Men. The plan for the volume emerged from a shared conviction that this is an important novel. The contributors have used All the King's Men as required reading in their teaching at Carnegie and have found it of special value not only in provoking lively discussion of both literary and social questions but in bringing home to students a realization of the validity, the immediacy, and the importance of modern literature.

No attempt has been made to achieve consistency of approach or to eliminate disagreement, and the writers of the papers are occasionally at variance.

The source of quotations from All the King's Men presented in these papers is the Harcourt, Brace Edition published in 1946. The pagination indicated is the same as that in the Modern Library Edition.

The volume was prepared for the press by a committee of the contributors under the chairmanship of John A. Hart.
