Eugene O'Neill : Complete Plays 1920-1931

Eugene O'Neill, the only American dramatist awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, wrote with poetic expressiveness, emotional intensity, and immense dramatic power. This is the second of three volumes comprising the Hist complete and authoritative edition of all 50 plays. Already a commercial success by 1920, O'Neill launched a period of bold experimentation, and the 13 plays collected here include some of his most celebrated. All God's Chillun Got Wings explores the tension and longing in a marriage between a black man and a white woman. The Foun­tain, Marco Millions, and Lazarus Laughed satirize American obsessions with youth, materialism, and death. 1 Ъе Hairy Ape, The Great God Brown, and Dynamo are O'Neill's most radical innovations in dramatic form. Rounding out the volume are two of his greatest achievements, Desire Under the Elms and Mourning Becomes Electra. "No serious literature collection is complete without the full set of O'Neill."-Library Journal.
