·       Steve Sullivan, PhD, Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, Spoon River Approaches to the Meaning of Life

"'Spoon River Anthology' by Edgar Lee Masters is an enduring classic poetry book that remains startlingly contemporary," said Joy. "First published in 1915, 'Spoon River Anthology' consists of a collection of monologue poems, each poem titled by the name of and written in the voice of a deceased citizen of a fictional community called Spoon River. These voices speak to us, and to each other, from beyond the grave, sharing their wisdom and experience from this unique perspective."
