9780573615702: Edgar Lee Masters' Spoon River Anthology

Charles Aidman, conceived from Edgar Lee Masters' Spoon River Anthology

Dramatic Platform Readings w/incidental music, songs

Characters: 3 male, 2 female

Bare Stage.

Via musical interludes, we are introduced in a cemetery to the ghosts of those who were inhabitants of this town, and whose secrets have gone with them to the grave. There are 60 odd characterizations and vignettes in this constantly interesting entertainment offering an amazingly varied array of roles and impersonations, from young lovers and preachers and teachers to the funny chronicle of the poor mixed up Jew who ends up in the wrong cemetery. Both the solid and humorous sides of life are portrayed, with fetching ballads, and the free verse form of Masters.

"A dramatic presentation reduced to its simplest terms. . . . moving and beautiful. . . . An evening of astonishingly stirring emotional satisfaction." -N.Y. Post

"A glowing theatre experience. . . . A brooding and loving American folk poem brought to life on a stage."-N.Y. Times

From the Back Cover:

This first illustrated, annotated version of the American classic was highly praised when it was first released, as much for John Hallwas's insightful introduction as for the work of Edgar Lee Masters.

About the Author:

Edgar Lee Masters was born in 1868 in Garnett, Kansas. He achieved fame in 1915 with the publication of Spoon River Anthology. Though he never matched the success of Spoon River Anthology, Masters was a prolific writer of diverse works. He published several volumes of poems including The Great Valley (1916), Along the Illinois (1942), The Serpent in the Wilderness (1933), and Invisible Landscapes (1935). In the 1940s he was awarded the Poetry Society of America medal, the Shelley Memorial Award, and the Academy of American Poets Fellowship. Edgar Lee Masters died in Melrose, Pennsylvania, in 1950 and is buried in Petersburg, Illinois.
