Who speaks for the Negro? by Robert Penn Warren( Book )

30 editions published between 1965 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 2,741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1964, Robert Penn Warren interviewed leaders, activists, and artists engaged in the U.S. Civil Rights Movement. His interviewees included well-known figures such as Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and James Baldwin, as well as lesser-known individuals whose names might otherwise be lost to history. Transcripts from these interviews, combined with Warren's reflections on the movement, were first published in 1965 as Who Speaks for the Negro? This unique text in the history of the U.S. Civil Rights Movement serves as a powerful oral history of an all-important struggle. A new introduction by David W. Blight places the book in historical perspective." -- Publisher's description

Brother to dragons : a tale in verse and voices by Robert Penn Warren( Book )

53 editions published between 1953 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The significantly revised version of Brother to Dragons appeared in 1979, twenty-six years after the original. It is, Warren wrote, 'in some important senses, a new work.' Told in the distinct voices of characters long dead and now gathered at an unspecified place and time, this long poem recalls events leading to and resulting from the 1811 murder of a young slave by Thomas Jefferson’s nephew. '“R.P.W.' is the narrator of the tale, whose poignant ending brings not only reconciliation among the ghostly figures but healing for Warren’s persona as well."--

Originally published in 1963, this powerful novel spools a rewarding, dramatic storyline while it probes the deeper philosophical search for self-definition in modern life and the symbolic demise of the agrarian South from technological progress. Flood begins with the arrival of two men in a small Tennessee town - Brad Tolliver, long-absent native son and successful screenwriter, and Yasha Jones, famous director and stranger to the region. Their purpose is to create a great film about the town, which will soon vanish when the massive dam being built downriver is completed. The town's inhabitants come vividly to life as past and present forces prepare them for a climactic new beginning to their world

The hero, Percy Munn, a young lawyer, is drawn into the battle; against his will, almost before he knows it, he becomes a leader in a struggle that is so pervasive and demanding that he is led by it to abandon first his profession and personal code, then his wife and home, and finally society itself
