Robert Penn Warren
Robert Penn Warren
America's first official poet laureate, Robert Penn Warren {1905-1989} received two Pulitzer Prizes for poetry, in 1958 and again in 1979. During a career that spanned six decades, Warren produced 16 volumes of poetry, 10 novels, a collection of short stories, and textbooks on poetry and fiction. The background of the stamp art recalls scenes from Penn's 1946 novel All the King's Men. This Pulitzer Prize-winning work recounts the rise and fall of charismatic Willie Stark, a southern politician, during the 1930s.
