Spoon River Anthology

Gelesen von LibriVox Volunteers

(4,25 Sterne; 2 Bewertungen)

This is a collection of poems, in the form of an entire community speaking from beyond the grave about their lives, and, in some cases, gossiping about their neighbors' lives. It's interesting to hear how other people perceive a particular character, and how that character responds. (6 hr 10 min)
