About the Author
Robert Penn Warren (1905-1989), born in Guthrie, Kentucky, was one of America's most revered writers, producing fiction, poetry, history, and criticism, much of it focusing on the moral dilemmas of the South. He served as America's first poet laureate. He received the Pulitzer Prize three times, for his novel All the King's Men and for his books of poetry Promises: Poems 1954-1956 and Now and Then. He is also the author of Jefferson Davis Gets His Citizenship Back and The Cave.
Noel Polk (1943-2012) was a professor of English at the University of Southern Mississippi and Mississippi State University, is the author of many critical studies on Welty and Faulkner, and is the coeditor of the Library of America edition of Faulkner's works.
PRAISE FOR THE RESTORED EDITION OF ALL THE KING'S MEN "To read it in this new edition is to be struck again by its raw power, its urgency and relevance."--New Orleans Times-Picayune "The original editors adjusted the novel to the tastes and styles of the time, but now we can read it as it was written. The result is a more complicated and emotionally charged--and longer--story."--Chicago Tribune
