This volume presents a critical conspectus on "Mourning Becomes Electra", "The Iceman Cometh" and "Long Day's Journey Into Night" which are held by many critics to be the three most important plays in the O'Neill canon. They celebrate mystery and the nobility of man's struggle and endurance. The selection of critical comment traces the development of responses to O'Neills art and its methods from first performance to the present day. Each play-section includes comment by O'Neill himself and early reviews and subsequent critical discussion. The editor's publications include "The Base String - The Underworld in Elizabethan Drama", "Thomas Sackville", "The Secret Cause - A Discussion of Tragedy", "Eugene O'Neill".
