Aims & Scope

Our interest extends beyond Robert Penn Warren’s own work to the work of those authors and scholars who formed part of Warren’s circle, including but not limited to R.W.B. Lewis, Cleanth Brooks, Allen Tate, John Crowe Ransom, Lewis P. Simpson, Ralph Ellison, Eudora Welty, and Katherine Anne Porter. Similarly, our call for papers extends beyond critical essays and reviews and encompasses relevant memoirs and reminisces, primary and archival materials, work dealing with writers important to Warren or about whom he himself wrote, bibliographic materials, and criticism and commentary in the spirit of Robert Penn Warren. We also strongly encourage pedagogical reflections that examine the way that Warren’s creative work and critical legacy continue to hold relevance in the classroom
