Adapted and Performed by
John Berryman’s Dream Songs are an American masterpiece. Brilliant as the poems are, their “wrenched syntax, scrambled diction, [and] extraordinary leaps of language and tone” can confound
readers. Homage to Henry transforms The Dream Songs into a more accessible drama for theater audiences, at once hilarious and haunting.
