Summary

Eugene O'Neill is one of the influential dramatists in the history of American theater. He would use realism, naturalism, expressionism, and symbolism to get his meaning across to audiences. Later, O'Neill employed more of his own life experiences in his plays. This innovative mix of classical themes and personal traumatic conflicts make a study of O'Neill's work compelling to audiences both yesterday and today.
