Another part of a long story : literary traces of Eugene O'Neill and Agnes Boulton

by:King, W. D. (W. Davies)

"An engrossing biography about the marital breakdown of a major literary figure, of particular interest for what it reveals about O'Neill's creative process, activities, and bohemian lifestyle at the time of his early successes and some of his most interesting experimental work. In addition, King's discussion of Boulton's efforts as a writer of pulp fiction in the early part of the 20th century reveals an interesting side of popular fiction writing at that time, and gives insight into the lifestyle of the liberated woman." Stephen Wilmer, Trinity College, Dublin.

Eugene O'Neill : beyond mourning and tragedy

by:Black, Stephen A.

"Stephen Black presents a new understanding of Eugene O'Neill's life (1888-1953), from his troubled childhood and adolescence through a glacially slow period of mourning for his family to his ultimate emergence from the preoccupation with grief and loss that had pervaded his life and his writings. Black argues that O'Neill consciously and deliberately used playwriting as a medium of self-psychoanalysis - an endeavor that led to the creation of some of the finest American plays ever written and, eventually, to a successful therapeutic outcome."--Jacket.
