Eugene O'Neill's Century: Centennial Views on America's Foremost Tragic Dramatist

Synopsis

Essays by contributors from diverse fields offer fresh perspectives on and penetrating interpretations of America's one indisputable world-class dramatist. Moorton's introduction vigorously defends O'Neill's tragedy, locating its genius in the violation of intimate relationships, especially the family. Three major divisions consider the nature of O'Neill's dramaturgy, the cultural and autobiographical sources of his art, and the challenges inherent in staging that art. The essays range from literary criticism and psychoanalytic and feminist interpretations of the plays, to O'Neill in translation, and the playwright from an actor's perspective.
