1 Berryman, John The Dream Songs
New York Farrar Straus & Giroux 1982 0374629250 / 9780374629250 Third Printing Paperback Good 
Unmarked, shelving wear on covers and mild development of creasing on spine. ; Book Description; Spine of the book has some signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and with minor wear. The Dream Songs is widely seen as Berryman's masterpiece, an impressively vast and varied collection of poems that is in itself a single, sprawling, ever-shifting poem. The songs in this great work are thus offered in many different tones, moods, and guises, although their form, Berryman's idiosyncratic reworking of the sonnet, remains more or less constant. Combining all of Berryman's earlier 77 Dream Songs (which won the 1965 Pulitzer Prize) and His Toy, His Dream, His Rest (which won the 1969 National Book Award) , this one-volume edition contains no fewer than 385 entries in what the critic Denis Donoghue has called Berryman's "dream diary." The book also has an index of first lines, an index of titles, and a note by the author. Editorial Reviews Review "The character of Henry [the hero of The Dream Songs] is a permanent addition to our literature." -James Schevill "A major achievement . . . [Berryman] has written an elegy on his brilliant generation and, in the process, he has also written an elegy on himself." -A. Alvarez, The Observer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. About the Author A widely celebrated American poet and critic whose contemporaries and friends included Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Bishop, and Delmore Schwartz, John Berryman (1914-72) taught at Princeton, Harvard, the University of Iowa, and the University of Minnesota. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.; Trade PB; 8 x 5.3 x 1.2 inches; 427 pages

3 Frumkin, Gene Freud by Other Means Poems
Albuquerque, New Mexico Cambridge University Press 2002 1888809345 / 9781888809343 Softcover Very Good 
Unmarked, may contains remnant stamp on inside cover page. ; Book Description; Spine of the book has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and with minor wear. Gene Frumkin's Freud by Other Means is an extraordinary collection, mining a core where language and silence meet and, through their interchange, interrogate psychological complexities of what it means to be human, embodied, yet simultaneously divine. These truly brilliant poems disclose a consciousness certain of the transformative power of language, a language at once rugged and tender in its explorations of the connective tissue of body, mind, and spirit. Central to these poems is a sensuality of phrase that Frumkin always makes inviting, delicious, tenderly available even in its most rigorous demand that the reader abandon the known world of the mind for a less known, richer, more generative poetic moment of critical reflection and associative reach. For decades Frumkin has cut his own superb poetic path, and Freud by Other Means continues and augments the achievements of this major American voice. I want to call him a 'treasure,' and I will, since this book, like his others, is a storehouse where each poem is a jewel that, when turned in the light of the reader's consciousness, reveals an immensity of being for which we can all be grateful."; 8.92 X 6.20 X 0.39 inches; 128 pages
