Robert Penn Warren

Author Code: ARPW

Born: Apr. 24, 1905 - Guthrie, Kentucky, USA

Died: Sep. 15, 1989 - Stratton, Vermont, USA

Educated at Vanderbilt University where he graduated summa cum laude in 1925, Warren then received his master's degree from the University of California, Berkeley in 1926. He then did further post-graduate work at Yale University and as a Rhodes scholar at New College, Oxford. During his time at Vanderbilt, Warren had begun to write verse and with some of his associates from that period would later form the Southern Agrarians. In 1929, he published John Brown: The Making of a Martyr, but it wasn't until 1936 that he published his poetry with Thirty-Six Poems, a volume that was well-received. In 1939, he published Night Rider, the first of many novels. In 1946, he firmly established his literary reputation with the publication of his novel, All the King's Men. The book won him the 1947 Pulitzer Prize for fiction. The story was made into an Academy Award winning picture in 1949 staring Broderick Crawford in the role of what is supposed to be governor Huey Long of Louisiana. In 1958, Warren won his second Pulitzer Prize, this time for poetry with Promises: Poems 1954-56. In 1979, his book of poems, Now and Then won him his third Pulitzer, making him the only writer to have won Pulitzer prizes for both fiction and poetry. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1980. In 1986, he became the first Poet Laureate of the United States. His works include At Heaven's Gate (1943), The Circus in the Attic and Other Stories (1947), Band of Angels (1955), The Legacy of the Civil War (1961), Who Speaks for the Negro? 1965), Meet Me in the Green Glen (1971), A Place to Come to (1977), Rumor Verified: Poems 1979-80 (1981), Portrait of a Father (1988) and New and Selected Essays (1989).
