Meet the Author

Eugene Gladstone O'Neill (1888-1953) was a Pulitzer Prize-winning American author, Nobel Laureate, and playwright. The son of an Irish immigrant actor, O'Neill attended Catholic boarding school and attended Princeton for a year, from which he was possibly expelled for throwing a beer bottle through the window of then-Professor Woodrow Wilson. O'Neill spent several years at sea, but finally settled on a career as a playwright in 1913 after a stay in a sanitarium. A chronic alcoholic, O'Neill nonetheless succeeded brilliantly as a playwright, winning the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1936 and several Pulitzers for his work.
