Hey, y’all, welcome to my blog. Here, I will be posting updates every Wednesday and Sunday. This blog will be on the book All The King’s Men.  I will write about my feelings ,thoughts , characters analysis’ , and much much more.

This book “…traces the rise and fall of demagogue Willie Talos, a fictional Southern politician who resembles the real life Huey Long of Louisiana. Talos begins his career as an idealistic man of the people , but he soon becomes corrupted by success and the lust for power.

I didn’t know who Huey Long was, so here is some information on him:

“Huey Long was a fiery and charismatic Louisiana politician who moved up the ranks at a young age. Branded a demagogue and radical by his opponents, and known for turning his back on established processes to gain political victories, Long controlled a vast political machine in the name of courting working class and poor constituents.”


Also, “He was an American politician who served as the 40th governor of Louisiana from 1928 to 1932 and was a member of the United States Senate from 1932 until his assassination in 1935.”


Knowing what we know about Huey Long, we now have a better idea of who Willie Talos is.

I hope y’all enjoy this blog, and find it helpful as I read this book and publish my thoughts about it 🙂 XO -ASH
