Comments About John Berryman

His best poem, I think, is 'The Traveller'. The speaker in the poem is hyper-sensitive to what other people think of him. He finds company with the couple who get off the train, so he does too. The 'Dream Songs' are not as good at all.

This guy Berryman makes my itch.

I am reading Dream Songs. I cant really like this poetry. I like Lowell so much, I thought I could eventually like Berryman, but no. Lowell is sculptural, so dramatic and so inventive. Berryman just seems kind of...whiny

Came here just to find some of the Dream Songs. Are there lots of poets who are unreadable on this sight?

Is there any way to actually, you know, read the effing poems?
