    'Spoon River' Begins May 9 Edgar Lee Masters' Spoon

    River Anthology will provtde the text of an mterpretau ve recttation to be presented tn our audttorium at 8 :00 o 'clock Thursday, Fnday and Saturday ntghts under the dtrect.ion of Mr. Stewart Be ach.

    Poems lD Spoon River An &bology are of an unusual kind, posseuing no poetic diction or poet.ic devices. Masters captures the spirit and essence of the Midwest in the late Dineteentb century much as Robert Frost did for New England. His plain, sa.tirlcal yet rom&ntlc verses are a col-lecUon of epitaphs tbat the residents of the Spoon River graveyard presmnably would write for &bemsel ves if they could.

    Spoon ostensibly

    is .. fictitious towu in

    Southern lllhwis , but it is in tereettng t.o note that tbe a.n-tb.ology made Masters highly unpopular with ma.ny of tbe people to Lewistown, Illinois, wbere be lived for a time.

    A cross-section of the people IS revealed, showmg the uoni-cal tnvlallttes that change human lives, the capricious ways nature bnngs them to theu deaths, and the simple, personal joys that provide the only stgnificant memories in a lifetime.
