Eugene O'Neill (1888-1953) is a most important American dramatist, some consider the most important, but it was many years before a source book was published on his life and work. "Eugene O'Neill: The Man and His Plays" was the first such work. The author takes each of O'Neill's play separately and analyzes it, as a reflection of O'Neill's relationship to his environment at the time the play was written. A critical summary of the play is given, as well as the circumstances under which it was produced. There is a checklist of all plays, a list of first performances, and a selected bibliography. At the end of the book, there are four manuscript sketches by O'Neill for the settings of his play, "Desire Under the Elms". These drawings originally appeared in the Provincetown Playbill, No. 5, Season of 1924-25, from which this battered source this reproduction was taken. The book includes author's preface, ix + 182 pages with Bibliographical appendix. 5.4 x 8 inches. Dover Publications, New York, 1967 edition, Dover edition first published 1947, a revised and enlarged version of the work published by Robert M. McBride & Company in 1929.
