Fred Wilkins at Monte Cristo cottage in New London, Connecticut in 1997.

Editor’s Foreword

In previous forewords I stated that Laconics would pattern itself along the line of The Eugene O'Neill Newsletter. The Newsletter was created in the winter of 1977 by Fred Wilkins, and it flourished through the winter of 1988, at which time it morphed into The Eugene O'Neill Review. It was created not as "a pudgy review or quarterly," but as a "newsletter" in which "far-flung articles" could be published, "forthcoming O’Neill productions and books" could be announced and reviewed, and "O’Neillians of academe [could] share news and insights with O’Neillians of the proscenium."

With Fred Wilkins' blessing and support, eOneill.com digitized all thirty-six issues of the Newsletter, making it readily available online to students and scholars throughout the world. I am pleased to announce that eOneill.com has acquired the copyright to the The Eugene O'Neill Newsletter, guaranteeing that this valuable and historic publication will continue to be freely available to all O'Neillians.

Volume 6 of Laconics collects papers from the Eighth International Eugene O'Neill Conference held in New York City this past June. As a thank you for allowing eOneill.com to shepherd his Newsletter for future generations, and as a tribute to his groundbreaking and tireless contributions to O'Neill studies, we dedicate this Volume 6 of Laconics to Frederick Wilkins.

Laconics welcomes provocative articles of any length concerning the life, times, and work of Eugene O’Neill and his contemporaries. Essays accepted for publication throughout the year will be added to the above table of contents. Please submit papers (with digital images, audio clips, or video clips) to the Laconics Editor.
