    About “John Berryman”

    1. John Berryman

      John Allyn Berryman originally John Allyn Smith was an American poet, born in McAlester, Oklahoma He was a major figure in American poetry in the second half of the 20th century and often considered one of the founders of the Confessional school of poetry He was the author of The Dream Songs, which are playful, witty, and morbid Berryman committed suicide in 1972.A pamphlet entitled Poems was published in 1942 and his first proper book, The Dispossessed, appeared six years later Of his youthful self he said, I didn t want to be like Yeats I wanted to be Yeats His first major work, in which he began to develop his own unique style of writing, was Homage to Mistress Bradstreet, which appeared in Partisan Review in 1953 and was published as a book in 1956 Another pamphle.His thought made pockets the plane buckt, followed It was the collection called Dream Songs that earned him the most admiration The first volume, entitled 77 Dream Songs, was published in 1964 and won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry The second volume, entitled His Toy, His Dream, His Rest, appeared in 1968 The two volumes were combined as The Dream Songs in 1969 By that time Berryman, though not a popular poet, was well established as an important force in the literary world, and he was widely read among his contemporaries In 1970 he published the drastically different Love Fame It received many negative reviews, along with a little praise, most notably from Saul Bellow and John Bailey Despite its negative reception, its colloquial style and sexual forthrightness have influenced many younger poets, especially from Britain and Ireland Delusions Etc his bleak final collection, which he prepared for printing but did not live to see appear, continues in a similar vein Another book of poems, Henry s Fate, culled from Berryman s manuscripts, appeared posthumously, as did a book of essays, The Freedom of the Poet, and some drafts of a novel, Recovery.The poems that form Dream Songs involve a character who is by turns the narrator and the person addressed by a narrator Because readers assumed that these voices were the poet speaking directly of himself, Berryman s poetry was considered part of the Confessional poetry movement Berryman, however, scorned the idea that he was a Confessional poet.
