Dream Songs describe the manias of a very sick man who drank two fifths of J.W. Dant per day, and this book describes the addiction, at length. Barley-based liquor makes a man puffy & effeminate; he worries about it in this book. PS: Henry was Berryman's dentist. See Dentatus Vaginus legend in the Index of Folk Motif Literature for the connection with teeth; he mentions that in the book, too. Berryman consciously wrote of & for intellectual history, and it shows in this book. A man of letters, in a time that had waning interest in such, he describes his cross-motivation like a noble mind o'erthrown, in media autovivisectu. Ask the question: What does it profit a poet to win the Pulitzer & hate his life?
