All the King's Men
When he wrote All the King's Men, the story of a good man corrupted by power, Warren said he was inspired by Greek tragedies and the real-life foibles of Louisiana's infamous governor, Huey Long. A poet and novelist, Warren crafted one of the most beautifully written books of the 20th century, a deserving recipient of the Pulitzer Prize. His morality tale is perhaps more powerful today than it was when it was first published 50 years ago.
