The Dream Songs

The Dream Songs - John Berryman, W.S. Merwin

A handful of these poems are among my favourite poems ever but, as a whole, I find the collection uneven: many, the majority, just mean nothing to me. Even so, the dream song is a gorgeous format, and when they are good they are very very good.
