Spoon River

Spoon River
река Спун
Река в штате Иллинойс. Длина 257 км. Берет начало на северо-западе штата, затем течет в южном и юго-западном направлениях через сельскохозяйственные угодья, мимо городков Вайоминг [Wyoming] и Лондон-Миллс [London Mills]; впадает в р. Иллинойс [Illinois River] у Хаваны [Havana] на западе центральной части штата. Река дала имя вымышленному городку (скорее всего, прообразу г. Питерсберга, шт. Иллинойс), жители которого рассказывают о себе в "Антологии Спун-Ривер" ["Spoon River Anthology"] (1915) уроженца Иллинойса Э. Ли Мастерса [Masters, Edgar Lee].
