A beautiful book. It has a poetic feel while the plot inexorably moves to its climax. ( )

In the age of Trump, this is a wonderful book. Especially the revised edition. It has been 45 years since I last read All the Kings Men and I found it much more profound today than when I was young. ( )

50 pages in - like this very much, the language, the feel

200 pages in - still digging it. this Jack Burden, a cynical, aloof narrator, neither offering opinions to others nor asking questions, always listening...love him as the presenter of this story

this is an über-Southern book.

i'm working off this list - https://main.oxfordamerican.org/magazine/item/470-the-best-southern-novels-of-al... - having first read Absalom, Absalom! (#1 on the list), now reading this (#2). i've got to say, simply as a "reader" engaging with a "story", this book is SO MUCH MORE enjoyable than Absalom, Absalom!. Absalom, Absalom! gets so nebulous, and i'm sure there are readers that love it for what they see as its artistry. Penn Warren's language has its own beauty and there is definitely artistry in it, yet it is visceral, direct, very removed from Faulkner's "Faulkner-ness".

still a long way to go in the story. i'm interested to see if i get bored with it, i usually do with longer books (this one is 642 pp).

300 pages in - still going pretty strong. the Cass Mastern story was somewhat, not extremely, interesting. seemed to go on too long.

420 pages in - 4 stars - Warren does a good job writing about the summer Jack and Anne's romantic relationship started. very engaging

like 30 pages from the end - i've enjoyed this book. it is worth reading, and maintains momentum well/fairly well for a longer work. i have to say some of the "theorizing" such as "The Twitch", while i appreciated the attempt, i don't feel Warren pulled those approaches off completely successfully.

NOTE: the "n" word appears in this book ( )

Robert Penn Warren's "All the King's Men" is magnificently vital reading, a book so charged with dramatic tension it almost crackles with blue sparks, a book so drenched with fierce emotion, narrative pace and poetic imagery that its stature as a "readin' book," as some of its characters would call it, dwarfs that of most current publications. Here, my lords and ladies, is no book to curl up with in a hammock, but a book to read until 3 o'clock in the morning, a book to read on trains and subways, while waiting for street cars and appointments, while riding elevators or elephants.

To get there you follow Highway 58, going northeast out of the city, and it is a good highway and new. Or was new, that day we went up it.

It was like the second when you come home late at night and see the yellow envelope of the telegram sticking out from under your door and you lean and pick it up, but don't open it yet, not for a second. While you stand there in the hall, with the envelope in your hand, you feel like there's an eye on you, a great big eye looking straight at you from miles and dark and through walls and houses and through your coat and vest and hide and sees you huddled up way inside, in the dark which is you, inside yourself, like a clammy, sad little foetus you carry around inside yourself. The eye knows what's in the envelope, and it is watching you to see you when you open it and know it, too. But the clammy, sad little foetus which is you way down in the dark which is you too lifts up its sad little face and its eyes are blind, and it shivers cold inside you for it doesn't want to know what is in that envelope. It wants to lie in the dark and not know, and be warm in its not-knowing. The end of man is knowledge, but there is one thing he can't know. He can't know whether knowledge will save him or kill him. He will be killed, all right, but he can't know whether he is killed because of the knowledge which he has got or because of the knowledge he hasn't got and which if he had it, would save him. There's the cold in your stomach, but you open the envelope, you have to open the envelope, for the end of man is to know.
It was not so much any one example, any one event, which I recollected which was important, but the flow, the texture of the events, for meaning is never in the event but in the motion through event.  Otherwise we could isolate an instant in the event and say that this is the event itself.  The meaning.  But we cannot do that.  For it is the motion which is important.
So there are two you's, the one you yourself create by loving and the one the beloved creates by loving you.  The farther those two you's are apart the more the world grinds and grudges on its axis.  But if you loved and were loved perfectly then there wouldn't be any difference between the two you's or any distance between them.
The creation of man whom God in His foreknowledge knew doomed to sin was the awful index of God's omnipotence.  For it would have been a thing of trifling and contemptible ease for Perfection to create mere perfection.  To do so would, to speak truth, be not creation but extension.  Separateness is identity and the only way for God to create, truly create, man was to make him separate from God Himself,and to be separate from God is to be sinful.  The creation of evil is therefore the index of God's glory and His power.
