Robert King’s Old Man Laughing is divided into three parts: Old, Man, and Laughing. The epigraph comes from a poem by Shih-Te: an old man laughs at himself when he falters, which also describes the gently self-mocking tone of King’s book. The first section begins with a look back at the poet’s happy childhood, What It Was Like Those Days : Even the dead, I thought then, grinning as I biked around town, were happy in their own dead way.

All the king’s men. First Published in 1946. To. Justine and David Mitchell Clay. I remembered thinking his head, the shape and the way it was set on his shoulders, was just like his old man’s head. All the king’s men. Chapter One. MASON CITY. Mrs. Stark–Lucy Stark, the wife of the Boss–Tiny Duffy, and I were in the back seat–Lucy Stark between Tiny and me. It wasn’t exactly a gay little gathering.

Even the old man by the roadside – the hitchhiker I had picked up on the way down to Baton Rouge to take my job . As a sort of footnote, I may remark that when All the King's Men first appeared in England, a section was omitted.

Even the old man by the roadside – the hitchhiker I had picked up on the way down to Baton Rouge to take my job – was ready to enter the story: he would become the hitchhiker whom Jack Burden picks up returning from Long Beach, California, the old man with the twitch in his face that gives Jack the idea of the Great Twitch. But my old Louisiana hitchhiker had no twitch in his face. Nor had I been Jack Burden. I had not been Jack Burden except in so far as you have to try to "be" whatever you are trying to create.

Poetry. In one fell swoop, OLD MAN LAUGHING exposes the incredible and the ordinary with tenderness. Knots, herbs, blurred nymphs, a duck on the husk of a muskrat's den. King's nostalgia--never sentimental and at times bittersweet--beckons old songs and lovers to the fore, asking not for remorse, but instead for giving due the wonder of childhood and the exquisite ties we make to people as years pass. In this world, the civilized and the natural shape us imperceptibly, and in King's view, a sanguine perspective is the reward. "I thought old men would know more about earth or love or mornings than I do,/ standing at sunrise in my own backyard,/ married for years, dazzled by my ignorance."
