Annotation: Striking, lucid, honest, and unsentimental, Dr. Berlin's poetry uses sensuous imagery to present the complex, challenging world of a physician both profoundly empathetic and artistically gifted. We share with the poet the pleasures and frustrations of his career as he advances from medical school to become a full fledged psychiatrist, both proud and humble. As Dr. Berlin says of himself, he becomes a "healer, priest, turner of textbook pages, searcher, listener, (and) arrogant crow consumed in white." Dr. Berlin sponsors an annual writing contest for students at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
