Freud on Broadway

Sievers, W. David
New York: Hermitage House, 1955
First edition

 

General review of O'Neill's plays in light of accepted and assumed influence of psychoanalysis.  A Moon for the Misbegotten is found to be one of the best.  The entire book treats the Freudian theme in considerable detail as reflected on the New York stage during this century, often roaming far afield to include works one would normally not consider appropriate.  An intriguing, if not always convincing, book.Miller
