All The King's Men by Robert Penn Warren ranked # 36 on The Modern Library's Top 100 Novels list as selected by its Board Members.

All The King's Men By Robert Penn Warren - Just The Good Stuff All the King's Men is a novel by Robert Penn Warren, published in 1946 and made into a film in 1949 and again in 2006.

The novel won the Pulitzer Prize in 1947 and is acknowledged to be one of the best American political novels of all time.

It portrays the life of ambitious, unscrupulous and populist politician Willie Stark as told by Jack Burden, who works for Willie. There is a striking similarity between Stark and the real-life politico Huey P. Long.

The novel is important not only for its fascinating depiction of the rise and corruption of Stark, however, but also for the portrayal of the cynical Burden. The novel was an outgrowth of an earlier version of the story, a verse play entitled Proud Flesh.
