Summary

Experimental O'Neill compiles in a single volume six of Eugene O'Neill's early plays: The Hairy Ape, The Emperor Jones, and what are often referred to as The S.S. Glencairn Plays, four related one-acts. With extensive companion essays and critical analysis, this indispensable volume brings together some of O'Neill's often overlooked and still highly controversial works. Exploring themes of race, capitalism, and isolation, these plays use a mix of realism and expressionism to highlight the human condition in groundbreaking drama that is at once thematically evocative of its era and fundamentally ahead of its time.
