ByVeena Neerudu

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Eugene Gladstone O’Neill is the creator of the serious American drama who put up the American theatre on the world map beside the European and continental theater. He won the Noble Prize for literature in 1936. The study of O’Neill is an adventurous voyage into the inwardness of the American soul of yesterday and today. His plays are translated, acted, and read in most of the European Countries; some of them have been produced even in Japan. O’Neill presents the vain hopes of the Human race in many of his plays, the study is limited to three of his major plays namely, Desire Under the Elms, Strange Interlude, and The Iceman Cometh, because it is more dominant and intense in these plays. This book helps the modern man to realize about himself and his destiny and the complete awareness of his solitude and helplessness of his existence in a hostile and alien world. The tragic struggle ultimately makes him aware of the truth that human life is worthy, valuable and meaningful.
