Dr. Joe Sarnowski’s new book

Dr. Joe E. Sarnowski, Chair of the Department of English at San Diego Christian College in El Cajon, California, has just published his book, The Literary Achievement of the American Poet Robert Penn Warren: His Life-Long Struggles with Morality, Myth, and Modernity (Edwin Mellen Press, 2009). 

In the book, Dr. Sarnowski examines how Warren’s poetry addresses the myths residing in five American cultural discourses: racism, war, romantic love, nature, and death.

For the cover of the book, Dr. Sarnowski chose an image of Warren from the collections of WKU’s Special Collections Library.
