Meet the Author

Eugene O'Neill (1888-1953) is one of the most significant forces in the history of American theater. With no uniquely American tradition to guide him, O'Neill introduced various dramatic techniques, which subsequently became staples of the U.S. theater. By 1914 he had written twelve one-act and two long plays. Of this early work, only Thirst and Other One-act plays (1914) was originally published. From this point on, O'Neill's work falls roughly into three phases: the early plays, written from 1914 to 1921 (The Long Voyage Home, The Moon of the Caribbees, Beyond the Horizon, Anna Christie); a variety of full-length plays for Broadway (Desire Under the Elms; Great God Brown; Ah, Wilderness!); and the last, great plays, written between 1938 and his death (The Iceman Cometh, Long Day's Journey Into Night, A Moon for the Misbegotten). Eugene O'Neill is a four-time Pulitzer Prize winner, and he was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature in 1936.

    Before you buy, please read!

    Of course the plays within this volume are superb to say the least. In my humble opinion, Eugene O'Neill is the greatest writer of plays in English ever. However, before one buys this book, know that the jerks who wrote the annotation lie! This volume does not include Strange Interlude or Mourning Becomes Elektra (those two plays are in Volume 2). However this edition is still worth purchasing for Iceman, Long Days' Journey, and Moon.

    AMERICA'S GREATEST PLAYWRIGHT AT HIS BEST!

    This collection of work gives the reader O'Neill, America's greatest playwright, at his most powerful. The two earlier collections are likewise great, but this third one contains his two greatest efforts: 'The Iceman Cometh' and 'Long Day's Journey Into Night.' In 'The Iceman Cometh,' O'Neill creates a world of happy derelicts. They spend their nights and days at Harry Hope's saloon, living through today by drinking and believing in the 'pipe dreams' of tomorrow. That is until Hickey comes to town. He forces them, for the first time, to look honestly at their lives. This dose of reality has devestating affects on the patrons of Harry's. Also included is O'Neill's masterpiece, 'Long Day's Journey Into Night.' This play, not published or produced in his lifetime, painfully tells the story of his own dysfunctional family. The plays action unfolds in one calendar day, but O'Neill, through dialogue, takes the reader back to the origins of their problems. The emotions displayed, which include guilt, envy, pain, cynicism, and love, tears the family apart, while strangely holding them together. Although the emotions often run high, O'Neill does it without employing sentimentality. He is honest without becoming melodramatic. A rare accomplish in emotional literature. And personally, my favorite play by an American playwright. These two works are not the only jems in the collection. 'A Moon for the Misbegotten,' now running on Broadway, continues the story of his brother, Jamie, who earlier appeared in 'Long Day's Journey . . .' Another fine play is 'Ah, Wilderness,' a coming of age story. The other works also bare the mark of O'Neill's genius. The stories, set in the first half of the twentieth century, are as true today as when O'Neill wrote them. They persevered and are timeless. His characters live with the reader long after the work is finished. And many of them are worth a second visit.
