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

A play : Strange interlude by Eugene O'Neill( Book )

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!"

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

Contour in time; the plays of Eugene O'Neill by Travis Bogard( Book )
5 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 808 libraries worldwide
Eugene O'Neill, one of America's most gifted and prolific playwrights, wrote more than 60 plays between 1914 and 1941, a level of creativity paralleled in modern times only by Bernard Shaw. The progress of his art from crude, one-act plays to the monumental tragedies of his later years is a story as dramatic and compelling as that of his tortured personal history. Combining the two, Professor Bogard traces the contours of O'Neill's life in his art. By discussing, in their approximate order of composition, the published and unpublished works, Bogard illuminates not only the plays, but also the literary, aesthetic, and historical influences on the playwright's development. For the revised edition of this insightful, meticulously written work, the author has added new and unpublished material on A Tale of Possessors, Self-dispossessed, a cycle of nine plays written by O'Neill during the 1930s and '40s, only one of which he readied for the stage. Among the plays in this cycle that have been posthumously produced are More Stately Mansions (New York, 1967) and A Touch of the Poet (New York, 1958)
