About the book:

1929. From the dust jacket: As a second title to this poem, Edgar Lee Masters has chosen An Epilogue to Domesday Book, for here he has reconnected in a separate and complete narrative, the lives of the jurymen that figured in that earlier poem. The central portrait is of the coroner, Merivale, and his love for the mysteriously beautiful Arielle; against this are told the stories of the other men. Each is a testimony to the inner meaning of live, the confusion, frustration and joys that are the share of small men. The deep irony and intolerance of hypocrisy that have marked Mr. Masters' other works are present in this poem. The power, the vivid insight that characterized Spoon River Anthology are also here, while the unfolding narrative gives a dramatic interest to the poem as a whole.
