Robert Penn Warren

Genius Loves Company

Edited by Mark Royden Winchell

At least since the dawn of the Romantic era, it has been assumed that the poet lives a lonely life, isolated in his garret. Nevertheless, writers are not always hermits and misanthropes. As human beings, they crave the company of other human beings; as artists they need the stimulation of other artists. This book brings to light Warren’s most important literary associations during his long and active life.
