A Drama of Souls

Tornqvist, Eqil
New Haven: Yale University Press, 1969
First edition, with dust jacket




One of the most valuable studies of O'Neill's techniques in print.  Using the term "super-naturalism" coined by O'Neill to define the type of realism practiced by Strindberg, the book covers all of O'Neill's plays in detail under chapter headings such as "Human Setting," "Visualized Soul," "Verbalized Soul," and so on.  Includes some O'Neill sketches for scene design and plans of action, and publishes the most complete chronology of O'Neill's works (plays only) now available, including dates of various drafts and of final versions, with information on locations where O'Neill composed the plays, producing companies, and cities involved with first productions.Miller
