I like the way the poems were classified in the book. I started at the beginning to read through at first but then decided to go to certain sections of the book like what he wrote when he was my age, and ideas like that. I enjoy his poetry as much as any that I have read and felt a personal connect with the author at some times.

And since Warren never seemed to reread any of his books without a pencil in his hand, Burt has .

And since Warren never seemed to reread any of his books without a pencil in his hand, Burt has referred to Warren’s personal library copies. A central figure in twentieth-century American literature, Robert Penn Warren (1905–1989) was appointed by the Library of Congress as the first Poet Laureate of the United States in 1985.

This dramatic version of the widely known work, which, as a novel, was the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize, had a highly successful Off-Broadway run during the 1959 season. As told by Atkinson: "Eliminate the story of Huey Long, which Mr. Warren says is not what he is trying to interpret. He is anatomizing the career with nothing but purity in his heart.

Rumor Verified: Poems 1979-1980. Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce. Although Warren's early poems were examples of the so-called New Critical school (as presented in his text book, Understanding Poetry, written with Cleanth Brooks in 1938), his later verse was more romantic and transcendental, reflecting the influence of American writers such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Hawthorne, and Herman Melville.

Collection of the poems of Robert Penn Warren.
Reviews:
  • Olelifan
Rumor Verified is a late collection of Warren's poetry, released two years after Now and Then-- one of his Pulitzer-prize winning books. The poems illustrate much of his skill as a poet and are infused with the bittersweet nostalgia of a man looking back at his life. Poems like "Blessed Accident" and "Questions You Must Learn to Live Past" will be carried with me long after the book has been put away.

The book is structured into eight sections, with chapter headings: Prologue; Paradox of Time; Events; A Point North; If This Is the Way It Is; But Also; Fear and Trembling; and Coda.

Rumor Verified does not seem to be one of the better known works by Warren. This is, I think, a shame. I would recommend it for people who admire his other poetry or for people who have come to his work through his prose and are looking for a good place to begin with the rest of his work.

Here's another favorite part from "Small Eternity": "That is the sound Reality makes as it gives beneath your metaphysical poundage. Memory dies. Or lIes. Time is a wind that never shifts airt. Pray only that, in the midst of selfishness, some small act of careless kindness, half-unconscious, some unwitting smile or brush of lips. may glow in some other mind's dark that's lost your name, but stumbles upon that momentary eternity.
