    Born in Garnnett, Kansas
    American poet
    Most well known for his 'Spoon River Anthology'
    He was a lawyer.
    He wrote his 'poetry' in free form. That's the kind that doesn't rhyme or have a meter like real poetry.

    He wrote an autobiography.
    The critics like his stuff.
    His second wife was thirty years younger than him.
    He named his son 'Hilary.'
    He was a respected literary critic and commentator on American culture.
    When he was a child, he lost his younger brother to diphtheria and his best friend in an accident within a year of each other.
    He had a very high output for someone who worked full time including:
    12 plays, 21 books of poetry, 6 novels and 6 biographies including ones for Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain and Walt Whitman.
    For a while, he worked for Clarence Darrow as an attorney helping the poor.
    Although never a star, he has had a respectable following over the years.
