In 1912, a twenty-four-year-old Eugene O'Neill was diagnosed with tuberculosis and sent to a sanitarium. There, O'Neill pondered his recent suicide attempt and his family's struggles with alcohol and drugs. It was there, too, that he decided to be a playwright after spending his days reading great works of literature and drama. Years later, looking back, he wrote Long Day's Journey Into Night, a play that he would complete at the very end of his career.

Setting the playwright in context to his personal life, social, historical and political events, other writers of influence, and more, you will quickly gain a deep understanding of O'Neill and the plays he wrote. Read O'Neill in an Hour and experience his plays like never before. Know the playwright, love the play!
