John Berryman might well be taken as a perfect example of artist ensnared in the catch-22 of childhood trauma, madness, alcohol abuse, and suicide. His solution to escaping this trap by purging it into his work makes us able to catch a glimpse of the excruciating quest a bipolar goes through. Pp. 92–97

Keywords: dream, father’s suicide, guilt
