schema:description"John Berryman was one of the most celebrated and accomplished poets of his time. In the two decades since his death, critical and biographical interest has continued at an impressive rate, but until now, no collection of original essays has appeared. Editors Richard J. Kelly and Alan K. Lathrop have brought together essays that provide a fresh assessment of Berryman as teacher, friend, colleague, poet, and critic. The volume opens with a moving personal reflection by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Philip Levine, who was one of Berryman's students, and includes contributions from Berryman scholars Lewis Hyde, Paul Mariani, Peter Stitt, and Charles Thornbury. The book concludes with Berryman's one-act play, Cleopatra: A Meditation, written in 1937 and never before published. The essays advance our understanding of Berryman's life and work, providing insights on his excellence as a teacher, his influential relationship with Robert Lowell, and the creative and destructive effects of alcohol on his work, among other topics."@en
