Eugene O'Neill: Quest for Reality in his Plays

Tejpal Singh (Author)
Synopsis Eugene O’Neill: Quest for Reality in His Plays for lovers of the theatre and for students of drama, particularly twentieth century American drama, this work will provide thought-provoking material. The writer makes an in-depth study of Eugene O’Neill’s attempt to describe and account for the tension and sorrow of the American middle and lower classes. Dr. Tejpal Singh’s insights provide an interesting perspective on the American dramatist’s highly involved search for reality, a search for understanding the motivation behind repression, exploitation and perversion of human values in a land of opportunity. The writer concludes that O’Neill’s attempt to understand the human predicament is aesthetically convincing but that he is unable to set forth viable solutions to the human problems of America because he is himself influenced by the suffocating bourgeois environment in which his characters have their being.
