NEW AND SELECTED POEMS. 1923-1985. Signed by Warren.

New York: Random House, 1985. 1985.

1st Edition. Hardcover. Inscribed First Trade Edition. 8vo. A near fine copy in dustwrapper in original cloth covered boards with gilt lettering on the spine and front in near fine dust wrapper. Appointed the first Poet Laureate of the United States, Warren's enduring novel, All The King's Men, long established as an American classic, earned him his first of three Pulitzer Prizes. Novelist, poet, critic and professor, Penn Warren's virtually unlimited range of form, style and subject matter all reveal an intense intelligence, magnified in the critical interpretations of authors Joseph Conrad, Mark Twain, Herman Melville, Eudora Welty, William Faulkner, Katherine Anne Porter, Ernest Hemingway, Robert Frost and Thomas Wolfe, that established him as a leading exponent of the 'New Criticism'.
A nice association copy.
