Rediscovering John Berryman


This man should be 

a household name 

Why not? Most people have heard of the Pulitzer Prize, but not of this Pulitzer Prize winning poet, John Berryman. His "confessional style" poetry was a precursor to the blogging and Facebook posting of the post-modern age. This documentary explores the question of legacy. Being a world famous poet and larger-than-life personality, what is he remembered for more--his personal life or his work? And who decides? Is it academia or indie rock bands?
