Long day's journey into night by Eugene O'Neill( Book )

321 editions published between 1940 and 2017 in 18 languages and held by 3,791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eugene O'Neill's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Long Day's Journey Into Night, written in 1940 and released in 1956 after the playwright's death, is now available in a newly designed edition. In this play, O'Neill turned to the lonliest and most entangle of subjects: an unflinching portrayal, in a time of acute psychological stress, of himself and of those closest to him. It is a somber and moving drama, and its writing was an act of magnificent courage. Since its premiere in Sweden in 1956, it has been performed all over the world on stage, screen, and television, and over a million copies of the book have been printed and sold

The plot centers on Nina Leeds, the daughter of an Ivy League professor, who is devastated when her adored fiancé is killed in World War I, before they have a chance to consummate their passion. Ignoring the unconditional love of the novelist Charles Marsden, Nina embarks on a series of sordid affairs before determining to marry an amiable fool, Sam Evans. While Nina is pregnant with Sam's child, she learns a horrifying secret known only to Sam's mother: insanity runs in the Evans family and could be inherited by any child of Sam's. Realizing that a child is essential to her own and to Sam's happiness, Nina decides on a "scientific" solution. She will abort Sam's child and conceive a child with the physician Ned Darrell, letting Sam believe that it is his. The plan backfires when Nina and Ned's intimacy leads to their falling passionately in love. Twenty years later, Sam's "son" Gordon Evans is approaching manhood, with only Nina and Ned aware of the boy's true parentage. The meaning of the title is suggested by the aging Nina in a speech near the end of the play: "Our lives are strange dark interludes in the electrical display of God the Father!"--Wikipedia.com

12 editions published between 1930 and 1993 in English and held by 1,038 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The settings range from a native-ruled island in the west Indies to a university town in New England, but the theme is universal--the eternal tragedy of man caught in passionate conflict between aspiration and frustration. O'Neill's plays explore man's continuing need to give the conflict of his life some meaning beyond itself, to find some justification for the importance which it has for him; the plays themselves are efforts to achieve a self-justifying dignity and grandeur

Exorcism : a play in one act by Eugene O'Neill( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shortly after the debut of Exorcism in 1920, Eugene O'Neill suddenly canceled production and ordered all extant copies of the drama destroyed. For over ninety years, it was believed that the play was irrevocably lost, until it was recently discovered that O'Neill's second wife had in fact retained a copy, which she later gave to the prolific screenwriter and producer Philip Yordan. In early 2011, Yordan's widow discovered the typescript of Exorcism--complete with edits in O'Neill's own hand--in her late husband's vast trove of papers. The discovery and publication of Exorcism, a relatively early play in the O'Neill corpus, furthers our knowledge of O'Neill's dramatic development and reveals a pivotal point in the career of this great American playwright."--Publisher description

A group of has-beens in Harry Hope's saloon wait for the annual visit of Hickey, a happy salesman. Hickey arrives a changed character and tries to make each man see reality and face the truth about himself. This play, written near the end of O'Neill's career, reflected a new and intensely personal style in his writing. In it are bits and snatches of himself, his brother, their father, and his friends. It transcends its tragedy and humor to say something about the human condition
