In the long poem Audubon Robert Penn Warren-named America's first PoetLaureate-found his authentic poetic voice and persona. In the Hearts Last Kingdom Calvin Bedient argues that from this point on he was seen in his best work as a great poet.
Reviews: "A beautifully sustained study in which the author investigates Warren's poetry since 1969 and reveals its characteristic voices, themes, measures, and metaphors. Bedient is at once a master of Warren's poetry and a master of criticism, and he writes as well as any contemporary critic."
"[Bedient's] contribution to an appreciation of the power of Warren's latest poetry . . . it is breathtaking."
