The Spoon River Country (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Spoon River Country Whatever is implied by that vague term the genius of places is comprehended in all justness of conception by the new collateral field of literary endeavor now coming into such general recognition and appreciation - the literature of locality. How much it has enriched the field of letters may be fully known only to the bookman who, denied the opportunity for travel, for personal adventure and discovery in regions made familiar during long evenings under the read ing lamp, is yet obsessed by that strange nostalgia - the nostalgia of unknown lands.
