Rest in No Peace

Part 1:

I picked The Spoon River Anthology text for my adaptation, with my main focus being on Jonas Keene.  I enjoyed this poem because it turned the wheels in my head.  It questions you to think why someone who has it all would turn to kill themselves. 


"If even one of my boys could have run a news-stand, Or one of my girls could have married a decent man"

These two lines made me compare the life of Jonas which is clearly harder (on the surface) to the life of Albert.

Part 2: FIRST DRAFT!

SECOND DRAFT

Part 3:

A broken man faces the sudden death of his only friend in the world and revisits his past to see where his bestfriend's perfect life went wrong.
