Religious Implications in the Novels of Robert Penn Warren

Marden J. Clark

Religious implications can be seen in the religiously passionate characters, the minor religious characters, and the major characters of Robert Penn Warren's novels World and Time EnoughBand of AngelsThe CaveNight RiderAt Heaven's Gate, and All the King's Men. The novels explore themes of free will and determinism, evil's influence on man's experience, and the nature of man. Ultimately Warren's works reject traditional Christianity but embrace religious thinking.
