Masters created a town of Spoon River and lets us look into the goings on there. This is nothing unusual in fiction. However, in this case we see the town through the voices of the dead. Every piece in this collection of free verse is that of one of the former inhabitants speaking from the grave. Some are funny, some of gut-wrenchingly sad, some are inspiring. Some connect together so a bit of a story emerges; many stand along.

For what could have just been a gimmick, it turns out to be surprisingly good.

I first read excerpts from this book while doing an assignment for acting class in college. It is an awesome collection of poetry! This collection really made me stop and think about life and make a few evaluations. While there are some elements I do not agree with wholeheartedly, the poems are quite enlightening for the most part. As you read, think about what you would say if you had fifteen or so lines in which to sum up your whole life....
