Biografía del autor:

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.

In 'Diff¿rent', 'The First Man' & 'Welded', egotistical characters have their illusions about love shaken by the force of other people's desires. 'All God's Chillun Got Wings' depicts the web of racial hatreds & spiritual longings that surround the marriage of a black man & a white woman. 'The Fountain' tells of Ponce de Leon¿s search for the fountain of youth. 'Marco Millions' satirizes American materialism by portraying Marco Polo as a hustling businessman blind to the riches of Eastern culture. 'Lazarus Laughed' shows its Biblical hero preaching love, laughter, & the defeat of death. The stoker Yank in 'The Hairy Ape', the architect Dion Anthony in 'The Great God Brown', & the minister¿s son Reuben Light in 'Dynamo' all try to find a place for themselves in an increasingly soulless & mechanistic world. Yank believes that he "belongs" in his stoke-hold until a terrified heiress calls him a "filthy beast." His rage turns to despair as he encounters a brutally indifferent society onshore. 'The Great God Brown' uses masks to depict the divided souls of its hero, his wife, & his alter ego, the successful businessman William Brown. Betrayed by his mother, Reuben Light forsakes the God of his father for the new electrical god of the dynamo but finds no escape from the sexual conflicts that O¿Neill characteristically intertwines w/ his hero's religious doubts. 'Strange Interlude' follows its heroine Nina Leeds through 9 acts & 25 years of passionate & painful involvement w/ 3 men. Inspired by contemporary psychology, the novels of James Joyce, & the soliloquies of the Elizabethan theater, O¿Neill uses spoken asides to reveal the shifting flow of his character¿s inner thoughts. His most commercially successful play, it won him his 3rd Pulitzer Prize. Ephraim Cabot, the patriarchal farmer in 'Desire Under the Elms', believes in a God as hard as the stony ground he works. He takes as his 3rd wife sensual Abbie Putnam, who covets both his land & his resentful son Eben, unleashing passions that move inexorably toward their fulfillment. In 'Mourning Becomes Electra', murderous lusts & hatreds wreak havoc upon the proud Mannon family. * The Library of America is an award-winning, nonprofit program dedicated to publishing America's best & most significant writing in handsome, enduring volumes, featuring authoritative texts. Hailed as "the most important book-publishing project in the nation's history" (Newsweek), this acclaimed series is restoring America's literary heritage in "the finest-looking, longest-lasting edition ever made" (New Republic).
