"An extremely insightful study of the relationship between Warren’s creative practice and his evolving attitudes on race."--Ernest Suarez, Catholic University of America

"Nobody before Szczesiul has been able to see how Warren's early views hang together with larger convictions about the nature and work of poetry, and how Warren's famous change of heart about segregation bore fruit also in a changed view of how poetry can sound, what subjects it can address, what relationship it has to the life and consciousness of the poet, and what kinds of relationships between truth and language are possible in poetry."--John D. Burt, Brandeis University

Robert Penn Warren, America's first Poet Laureate, three-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize, founder of the New Criticism, and one of the most prolific American poets of the twentieth century, wrote more about race than perhaps any other white literary figure of his generation. His was a crucial voice speaking to other white southerners fearful of the impact of integration on their way of life. Tracing connections between his changing views on racial politics and his varying poetic theories and themes, Anthony Szczesiul offers a new, revisionary reading of Warren's diverse and extensive canon of poetry.

Szczesiul delineates the political and ideological implications of Warren's evolving aesthetic, revealing that Warren's poetry was in an intensive and ongoing dialogue with its changing social and historical contexts. Politically, Warren made the dramatic transition from a segregationist to an integrationist position. Poetically, his career successfully bridges the modern and postmodern eras of 20th-century American poetry. Szczesiul demonstrates that Warren's work evolved not simply as a natural consequence of artistic maturity and development but through difficult negotiations with issues of self and identity, politics and aesthetics, individual will and social change, and race and cultural pluralism. He maintains that Warren's aesthetic conflicts become especially apparent when we consider his poetry alongside his racial politics. Szczesiul is the first to thoroughly trace the ways in which Warren's changing thoughts on race influenced his aesthetic thinking, and vice versa. His frank approach to this inflammatory subject makes considerable use of unpublished archival materials, from which Warren emerges as an extremely complex figure with great contemporary relevance. 

Anthony Szczesiul is assistant professor of English at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell.

I just want to ask one question before anything starts. I just want to ask where you’re from. Kreyling examines Warren texts that deal directly with racial issues and in some sense attempt to or could be said to speak for the Negro, especially John Brown: The Making of a Martyr (1929), The Briar Patch (1930), and Who Speaks for the Negro? (1965), though not from an ethnographic perspective. CrossRefGoogle Scholar. Anthony E.

At the end of Racial Politics and Robert Penn Warren’s Poetry, Anthony Szczesiul quotes from Who Speaks for the Negro? Warren’s description of James Baldwin’s utterances concerning race and applies it to Warren himself: Whatever is vague, blurred, or self-contradictory in his utterances somehow testifies to the magisterial authenticity of the utterance-it is the dramatic image of a man struggling to make sense of the relation of personal tensions to the tensions of the race issue.
