    I started reading Spoon River Anthology today, and almost immediately a surprising wave of enthusiasm invaded me.
    For those who never heard of it, the Anthology is basically a compilation of fictitious epitaphs from the (dead) people of an imaginary town. All two hundred and fifty-four of them are deeply connected, and contribute to from an image not only of Spoon River, but the world itself.
    So... any comments welcome.

    I got to read it in high school in a theater class. I thought it was great, not sure why, but I really liked it.
