This essay explores Warren's All the King's Men as a figurative gloss on the discussion of human freedom and responsibility appearing in Leo Tolstoy's second epilogue to War and Peace. Isaiah Berlin's 1953 work on Tolstoy, The Fox and the Hedgehog, provides a theoretical framework for this analysis.
