Post Spoon River Anthology
Spoon River Anthology, by Edgar Lee Masters.

Great book.

From Wikipedia:

Spoon River Anthology (1915), by Edgar Lee Masters, is a collection of short, free verse poems that collectively narrates the epitaphs of the residents of Spoon River, a fictional small town named after the real Spoon River that ran near Masters' home town....

I put together this pdf of Spoon River Anthology a while back. At the link below. You can right-click your mouse and Save As to place it on your hard drive, to read at your convenience. It's a fascinating book.

I read the first several and found them really interesting, now I want to finish them all. Of course, I grew up in New Hampshire where old and older cemeteries are everywhere for the perusing.

Post Re: Spoon River Anthology
I read Spoon River Anthology many years ago (too many to remember). I must admit all I can really remember about it is the synopsis... poems relating to epitaphs in a cemetery. :blush: Will have to pull it up and look at it again. :hmm:

Post Re: Spoon River Anthology
The storytelling device of interlocking observations from the dead was revolutionary. The book had a big influence on American fiction writers for a couple of decades.
