A collections of stories of people who lie beneath the headstones in Spoon River. I used this book in college for an advanced acting class. Each has a story to tell, and makes one think about who are the people in the marked graves. In this anthology, we learned about delivery and interpretation of each person's story, and performed each anthology several times over, interpreting it in a different fashion each and every time. For those who enjoy exploring old graveyards and reading old headstones, this book is for you.

From Foreword: To think of a small town cemetery is to imagine peace. Green grass, shady trees, the occasional spot of colorful flowers amid a variety of headstones with intriguing epitaphs. Imagine if these tombstones could talk. In Spoon River Anthology, they do--reflecting the human foibles of a small town.
