Michael Carriger Publishes on PBS Learning Media


Michael Carriger and Bill Patterson selected clips from a documentary (Rediscovering John Berryman) on poet John Berryman and created lesson plans for high school English teachers.  The site above houses those plans, the clips, and additional resources, examining Berryman’s The Dream Songs, his relationship with his contemporaries, his writing in the mid-twentieth century, and questions of reception and audiences.  Their work with the documentary’s producer stems from a presentation they made at the Berryman at 100 Conference at the University of Minnesota in 2014 and the subsequent publication of that presentation in John Berryman:  Centenary Essays in 2017.  Rediscovering John Berryman premiered on PBS in the fall of 2022.
