Summary In 1976 -- the bicentennial year -- Robert Penn Warren told Bill Moyers that he was ""in love with America"" but his love for the nation was more often than not troubled and angry. Warren once remarked that ""any intelligent person is inclined to criticize his country more strongly than he will criticize anything else. And he should It's a way of criticizing himself, too ... Trying to live more intelligently, and more fully."" In The American Vision of Robert Penn Warren, a noted Warren scholar traces the evolution of our first poet laureate's distinctive stance toward the American experiment
