Abstract:

"Stephen Black presents a new understanding of Eugene O'Neill's life (1888-1953), from his troubled childhood and adolescence through a glacially slow period of mourning for his family to his ultimate emergence from the preoccupation with grief and loss that had pervaded his life and his writings. Black argues that O'Neill consciously and deliberately used playwriting as a medium of self-psychoanalysis - an endeavor that led to the creation of some of the finest American plays ever written and, eventually, to a successful therapeutic outcome."--Jacket.
