Summary:

Robert Penn Warren (1905-1989), romancier du Sud, fut longtemps le grand rival de Faulkner. Les Fous du roi (prix Pulitzer 1946), sans doute son plus grand livre, nous fait assister au douteux combat qu'un homme peut-etre sincerement epris de justice entend livrer - seul d'abord ou presque - contre les forces de la corruption et du mensonge. Nous sommes dans l'Amerique profonde du debut des annees 30, mais en territoire plutot familier: trafics d'influence, combines et crapuleries en tout genre, histoires de sexe ou d'argent opportunement deterrees a l'attention d'un ennemi politique ou d'un ami devenu genant - les choses ont decidement peu change. L'apprenti-sorcier, vite promis a ce qui ressemble a une ascension irresistible, sera a son tour rattrape par un passe dont il a imprudemment remue les eaux troubles. Car le temps, ce grand oublie des ambitieux d'ou qu'ils viennent, finit toujours par se venger, en y mettant parfois une terrible ironie. Et puis la violence, meme au service de la meilleure cause, n'est jamais un instrument facile a manipuler... Un livre feroce et melancolique, construit a la facon d'une partie d'echecs qui laissera, on le devine, la plupart des acteurs sur le carreau... et les survivants prives de bien des illusions.

Summary:

First published in 1988, this is the story of how Claude Dansey, deputy head of MI6, infiltrated Henri Déricourt, double agent extraordinaire, into the rival British wartime secret service, SOE. The ensuing trail of destruction and betrayal led to the loss of over four hundred British and French agents. Recruited as the man SOE so desperately needed, Déricourt penetrated the heart of PROSPER, SOE's biggest network in France. At the same time he renewed contact with Karl Boemelburg, head of German counter-espionage in Paris. Every movement, code and dispatch from the British agents was made known to Boemelburg; Déricourt gave him everything. His treachery finally led to the disastrous fall of the PROSPER network, and to the arrest of nearly one thousand men and women, hundreds of whom died in concentration camps. Was it patriotism that drove Dansey, or was the Déricourt plan merely part of the secret war between MI6 and SOE, a war in which Dansey held all the weapons? All the King's Men is the dramatic account on one of the most ruthless secret operations of the Second World War.

Summary:

This first book-length study of All the King's Men argues that, rather than being primarily about an American political demagogue, the novel is fundamentally about a culture at war with itself - the conservative Old South struggling against the progressive New South - and that Burden, not Stark, is the central figure. Employing a chapter-by-chapter approach, Harold Woodell, the study's author, elucidates Stark's transformation from "Cousin Willie" to "The Boss," representing the values of the New South, and traces Burden's personal growth as inheritor of Old South traditions and reconciler of the Old and the New. Readers are given a thorough grounding in the myriad social changes affecting southern culture and politics during the early part of the twentieth century, along with a helpful chronological listing of the narrative's events and an incisive afterword contrasting Stark with Burden.

Summary:

Robert Penn Warren is one of the best-known and most consequential Kentucky writers of the twentieth century and the only American writer to have won three Pulitzers in two different genres. All the King's Men, generally considered one of the finest novels ever written on American politics, transcends sensationalism and topicality to stand as art. It was a bestseller, won the Pulitzer Prize, and became an Academy Award--winning movie. Depicting the rise and fall of a dictatorial southern politician -- modeled on Huey Long of Louisiana -- the timeless story and memorable characters raise questions about the importance of history, moral conflicts in public policy, and idealism in government. In Robert Penn Warren's All the King's Men: A Reader's Companion, author Jonathan S. Cullick considers the themes of this famous novel within the context of America's current political climate. He addresses the novel's continuing relevance and interviews a cross-section of elected and appointed officials, as well as journalists, in Kentucky to explore how Warren's novel has influenced their work and approach to politics. By focusing on what Warren's novel has to say about power, populism, ethics, and the force of rhetoric, Cullick encourages readers to think about their own identities and responsibilities as American citizens. This volume promises to be not only an indispensable companion to All the King's Men but it also provides context and a new diverse set of perspectives from which to understand this seminal novel.

Summary:

Robert Penn Warren's 1946 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel All the King's Men is one of the undisputed classics of American literature. Fifty years after the novel's publication, Warren's characters still stand as powerful representations of the moral dilemmas faced by individuals in positions of power. All the King's Men had its genesis in Warren's stage play Proud Flesh, unpublished in his lifetime. He also wrote a subsequent unpublished play titled Willie Stark: His Rise and Fall and a later dramatic version of the novel that shared the title All the King's Men. This volume is the first to collect all three dramatic texts and to publish Proud Flesh and Willie Stark. Proud Flesh is particularly fascinating for what it reveals about the development of All the King's Men and Warren's changing perceptions of its characters and themes. The other plays, as post-novel writings, provide a forum for Warren to clarify his intentions in the novel. The editors' introduction to this collection reviews the composition history of the works and their relationship to the novel and to each other. The new perspectives on Warren's writing presented in Robert Penn Warren's "All the King's Men": Three Stage Versions provide a glimpse into a creative mind struggling with a compelling story and offer readers another way of looking at this American classic. This book is an essential reference in Warren studies that will give students of All the King's Men another context from which to consider Warren's novel.

Summary:

All the Kings Horses, All the Kings Men is a deeply moving account of the life of the author's son, previous to and following the discovery of the presence of a tumour in his bones, a result of Osteogenic Sarcoma. The story begins at the beginning - with Jonathan's birth. A first-time mother, the author has her life and her home carefully planned and prepared in anticipation of the arrival of 'Boots'. She is soon to realize that having a child is not something one can plan; they arive when they like and they occupy one's thoughts and affections to such an extent that all the best-laid plans for going back to her career make less and less sense. After a year, the author makes the decision to become a 'full-time, on-location mom'. The closeness that this allows to develop is to stand her and her son in good stead for the difficult time to come when Jonathan's illness is discovered. The author's prose is fluid and articulate, conveying with ease the deep love which she feels for her son. The description of these carefree early years draws the reader into their extraordinary story, so that he too feels affection for this boy at whom life is about to throw its worst, whilst the day-to-day struggle which is to follow is a lesson in courage for us all. This is a well-written book, with an important message for parents, parents-to-be, and anyone who has felt and given the precious love unique to parent and child.

Summary:

Saul David's All The King's Men is a thrilling history of the British Redcoat from the English Civil War to Waterloo. Between 1660 and 1815 British supremacy on foreign soil was near total. Central to this success was the humble redcoat soldier who showed heroism in battle and stoicism in peace, despite appalling treatment. This is their story: of brutal discipline and inedible food, of loyalty and low pay, of barracks and battlefield - of victory, defeat, life and death. Praise for All The King's Men: 'An extraordinary story, packed with drama, incident and great characters...All The King's Men is all you could hope for...Quite an achievement', Patrick Bishop, Country Life 'A heady mixture of heroism, incompetence, devilish tactics and plain good luck', Sunday Times 'Filled with swashbuckling derring-do, the reek of blood and gunpowder, combined with shrewd analysis of power, war and psychology', Simon Sebag Montefiore Saul David is Professor of War Studies at the University of Buckingham and the author of several critically acclaimed books, including The Indian Mutiny: 1857, Zulu and, most recently, Victoria's Wars: The Rise of Empire. He recently presented 'Bullets, Boots and Bandages' for BBC 4 and is a regular contributor to Radio 4.
