Abstract:

Eugene O'Neill chose the nine full-length plays in this edition as best representing his work. "O'Neill was the first American dramatist to justify Shaw's definition of the theatre as a 'factory of thought, a prompter of conscience, a school of social conduct, an armory against despair and dullness and a temple of the ascent of man,'" wrote the critic Harold Clurman. His plays are "the one sure American contribution to the world literature of the theatre." He was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1936. O'Neill brought European expressionism, realism, and naturalism to his work, as well as a level of despair not seen before in the U.S. theater. He wrote from his own experience, mining the conflicts that characterized his relationship with his family and using symbols of the home as ironic inversions of love, life, and affirmation. - Jacket flap.

A collection of nine plays by the American playwright, including "The Emperor Jones" and "Desire Under the Elms."
