Edgar Lee Masters (1868-1950) wrote more than twenty-five books of verse, four plays, several novels, an autobiography, and biographies of Lincoln, Twain, and Whitman. He also had a successful career as a lawyer in Chicago. Masters’s Spoon River Anthology, a collection of short free-form poems describing life and skewering hypocrisy in a small American town, is his best remembered work and a rare poetry bestseller.
