Eugene O’Neill

Scribes and songsmiths

O’Neill won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1936. By then he had written “Mourning Becomes Electra,” “Strange Interlude,” “Desire Under the Elms,” “Anna Christie,” “The Emperor Jones” and “Beyond the Horizon,” which brought him his first of four Pulitzer Prizes, in 1920. Unlike most Broadway dramas written in the ’20s and ’30s, several of O’Neill’s continue to be staged today. Much of his finest work, however, was not staged until after his death, in 1953, including “A Touch of the Poet,” “A Moon for the Misbegotten” and his masterpiece, “Long Day’s Journey Into Night.”
