About this Item

First edition. 8vo, blue cloth in dustjacket. xxi, 317. A fine copy in bright, slightly edge rubbed jacket. First Edition. Berryman here continued the work he began with 77 DREAM SONGS for which he won the Pulitzer prize for poetry. Berryman had this to say about this series of poems: "The poem then, whatever its wide cast of characters, is essentially about an imaginary character (not the poet, not me) named Henry, a white American in early middle age sometimes in blackface, who has suffered irreversible loss and talks about himself sometimes in the first person, sometimes in the third, sometimes even in the second: he has a friend, never named, who addresses him as Mr. Bones and variants thereof. Requiescant in pace". Bookseller Inventory # 11754
