Description Reviews
 
America's preeminent playwright led the early 20th century U.S. theater into the mainstream of world drama. Winning four Pulitzer Prizes and one Nobel Prize for literature, O'Neill's nationalistic work held a mirror to American society. As a playwright, he was a social critic and moral guide, providing insight into man's inner nature and the consequent manifestations in a democratic society.

O'Neill wrote 11 plays characterizing the internal struggle of the individual in America as materialism versus idealism. Strange Interlude and Long Day's Journey into Night were two of his most revered works. He also frequently addressed the conflict between the sexes, societal concerns such as racial discrimination, and the love of family and friends.
