About the Author

Eugene O'Neill (1888-1953) is one of the most significant forces in the history of American theater. With no uniquely American tradition to guide him, O'Neill introduced various dramatic techniques, which subsequently became staples of the U.S. theater. By 1914 he had written twelve one-act and two long plays. Of this early work, only Thirst and Other One-act plays (1914) was originally published. From this point on, O'Neill's work falls roughly into three phases: the early plays, written from 1914 to 1921 (The Long Voyage Home, The Moon of the Caribbees, Beyond the Horizon, Anna Christie); a variety of full-length plays for Broadway (Desire Under the Elms; Great God Brown; Ah, Wilderness!); and the last, great plays, written between 1938 and his death (The Iceman Cometh, Long Day's Journey Into Night, A Moon for the Misbegotten). Eugene O'Neill is a four-time Pulitzer Prize winner, and he was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature in 1936.

Format: Hardcover
This exquisite collection of Eugene O'Neill's later works is worth the beautifully bound edition from the Library of America. Including some of the most enduring examples of american playwrighting excellence and some little-known gems, this collection is a must-have for the serious theater fan, theater student and certainly theatrical producers. Since last year's Tony award-winning revival of "The Iceman Cometh" and this year's "Moon for the Misbegotten" have been such successes in New York, O'Neill's most personal plays are suddenly current again. This volume edited by Travis Bogard is the perfection addition to any collection, when coupled with the equally stunning volume of O'Neill's earlier work "Eugene O'Neill:Complete Plays 1913-1920."

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great addition to my collection. This is a larger volume, containing possibly the most of Eugene's plays. It is during this time period he received his second Pulitzer Prize, and we can see why. His writing is splendid, and his motifs of family and relationship are spectacular. During this time period, he lost his father, mother, and brother while also experiencing another divorce. So, expect some darker tones, but do not fret; Eugene O'Neill proves he is America's playwright
