Format: Paperback
All the poems but the /Dream Songs/, which are collected separately (also from Amazon). The included /Sonnets/ are from the original ms carbons, unemended, but with the five extra of the 1964 first edition.
Easy typeface and size, stanzas properly divided.
Adequate bio for all but Berryman scholars.
You like Berryman in whole or part, or you don't, and this is where you'll find out. If you do, a must-have (also the /Dream Songs/).

I read these poems 30 years ago and 4 lines stuck in my head all those years, and it was truly wonderful to find the poem that they were from, and to revisit these that were so vibrant and exciting when I first read them.

This is a great book since it includes all of Berryman's poetry, save "The Dream Songs," which I like to tackle on its own, anyhow. I'm one of those annotaters who writes directly in and on his books!
