|This is the most penetrating study available about the life and specifically the writing of Stephen Crane.|
Berryman, originally named John Smith, was raised a Roman Catholic. His father, a banker, committed suicide when John was 12; his mother remarried, to a man named Berryman whose name the boy took. He was educated at Columbia, where he studied with Mark Van Doren, and at Cambridge, after which he taught at various universities, finally settling at the University of Minnesota in 1954 where he taught until his suicide in 1972. Berryman's early work was technically skillful but relatively conventional; it was his Pulitzer Prize-winning DREAM SONGS that gained him renown as a poet: 395 18-line, sonnetlike poems about his alter ego, a troubled middle-aged man named Henry. Besides poetry, he also wrote short stories and a biography of Stephen Crane. Berryman battled all his life with alcoholism, and never ceased to be affected by his father's suicide. In 1972, he killed himself by jumping off a bridge into the icy Mississippi River.
