    Spoon River has 244 accounts of the lives of people in the town that explain its goings on over a couple of centuries. Each free form verse is presented as an epitaph of one of the citizens delivered themselves, often criticizing the words said about them on their tombstone or the monument or stone left above them. The stories build on one another as well as reference various family members and others mentioned in other stories.

    From a cemetery in a mythical small town in Illinois, the dead speak about their lives. Each free-verse monologue stands as an epitaph for the person speaking, yet the play is ultimately about life, not death. Featuring 50 performers with specially commissioned original music, this is the only audio version of this landmark classic available.

    Un secolo fa, con l'Antologia di Spoon River e i suoi oltre 200 immortali personaggi che popolano un piccolo cimitero di campagna, Edgar Lee Masters ha consegnato ai posteri la memoria poetica di una comunità. Cent'anni dopo, quei personaggi trovano una voce nuova grazie a 243 ragazzi e ragazze e alla loro interpretazione spontanea, da attori per un giorno. Così il microcosmo umano che era ieri un'immaginaria cittadina dell'Illinois rivive oggi in una rete di scuole dall'altra parte del mondo.
