The Dream SongsVement He has written an elegy on his brilliant generation and in the process he has also written an elegy The Dream PDFEPUB or on himselfThe Dream Songs are eighteen line poems in three stanzas Each individual poem is lyric and organized around I've been pecking then rummaging then gobbling then feasting then gagging then lilting over these poems for the past month or so I appreciate it when erudite people than myself admit that they might easily tag a poetry book with the triumphal term read when alas world enough and tome they haven't actually literally sat down and read all of it as one reads novels or short stories Very few poets can really claim this at least in my reading life ironically it's rarer than you thinkthink about itWell I'm most of the way through these mad and maddening dry objective sweaty self deprecating lacerating sneakily surreal and hypnotizingly assured poemsHere check them out yourself Luckily for us Berryman happens to be a pretty fulsome and dramatic reader of his own work one has a little interview snippet in the beginning dig his tombstone beard and angular glasses and his fine thin fluttering childlike hands think the two readings are from the same night or at least the same era when Berryman received a MacArthur grant or a Guggenheim or whatever the hell to travel and live and work in Ireland for awhile He might be bombed he might just be getting emotional over his own work but he also might be totally bombedIt's already a little late in the game library wiseit's due in a couple days and I have a bust schedule of chaos at this point in my lifeThe honest spitty rabble rousing voice is sorefreshing It's nice to hear common speech thrown in with snarky severe incantatory phrases It reminds me that you don't have to don your Shelley mask in order to reach the heights of poesy and that a sharp eyed yet anguished and slow motion collapsing neurotic can rally to make it new and lastSalut Didn't finish it Gotta be honest about this but I will definitely get my hands on a copy asap
