1920. American poet and novelist who practiced law for nearly thirty years. Spoon River Anthology is the book that made his reputation and is regarded as one of the most popular and widely known works in all of American literature. Mitch Miller, one of his novels, is mostly about growing up in Illinois. The book begins: Supposin' you was lyin' in a room and was asleep or pretty near asleep; and bein'; asleep you could hear people talkin' but it didn't mean nothin' to you-just talk; and you kind of knew things was goin' on around you, but still you was way off in your sleep and belonged to yourself as a sleeper, and what was goin' on didn't make no difference to you; and really, supposin' you was tryin' to get back into deeper sleep before you heard these things. And then supposin' now and then as your eyes rolled back into your head while sleepin' you saw through the lids-not tryin' to look, but your eyes just saw as they rolled past the open place between the lids-and you saw squares of light and dark, or maybe roundish blurs.
