Spoon River Anthology

I just finished reading Spoon River Anthology by Edgar Lee Masters.  It was a very interesting book.  If you have read it, or plan on reading it, it’s like nothing you’ve read before.  It tells the stories of dead citizens of Spoon River, Illinois.  It tells the story through poetry, a short story/poem, and a play.  It’s very well done.  It’s classic literature, and the best way to get a feel for it is read it.  I won’t go in more depth than that.
