"She Lit a Fire" by Michael Falcone

Step 1: Selecting Your Text

This adaptation is based on Mr. Benjamin Pantier, Mrs. Benjamin Pantier, Reubin Pantier, and Emily Sparks of The Spoon River Anthology by Edward Lee Masters. I found many of the stories to be dark, and ultimately tragic, with the exception of the aforementioned. I think there is something interesting and telling about the lasting love between Emily and Reubin, especially when compared to the devastating love that existed between his parents. The metaphors of fire, hydrogen, oxygen, as they related to addiction, love, and hate, were so inspiring, and visually evocative. Their stories also seemed identifiable, especially in the context of today.
