Eugene O'Neill: A Critical Study

Winther, Sophus Keith
New York: Random House, 1934
First edition, with dust jacket

 

An excellent study of O'Neill's dominant ideas in relation to the modern industrial age, written when he was still considered a practicing playwright.  Highly favorable without eulogy.  The whole O'Neill canon is considered as a unit, and discussed in terms of moral and social philosophy.  It bears comparison with Skinner's Poet's Quest and contrast with Geddes' Melodramadness.Miller
