PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC All the King's Men books More than just a classic political novel, Warrens tale of power and corruption in the Depression-era South is a sustained meditation on the unforeseen consequences of every human act, the vexing connectedness of all people and the possibilityits not much of oneof goodness in a sinful world. Willie Stark, Warrens lightly disguised version of Huey Long, the onetime Louisiana strongman/governor, begins as a genuine tribune of the people and ends as a murderous populist demagogue. Jack Burden is his press agent, who carries out the bosss orders, first without objection, then in the face of his own increasingly troubled conscience. And the politics? For Warren, thats simply the arena most likely to prove that man is a fallen creature. Which it does.
