About the Play:

Selected as a 2008 AAUP University Press Book for Public and Secondary School Libraries.

All of Eugene O'Neill's themes and concerns find expression in his one-act plays. They are the dramatic equivalent of short stories. Here gathered in the single volume Collected Short Plays are nine one-act plays that span the Nobel Laureate and four-time Pulitzer Prize winner's career — from the early sea plays to the Expressionist masterpiece The Hairy Ape to the eerie nocturnal monologue Hughie.

Included in the volume Collected Short Plays are: Bound East for Cardiff; Fog; Thirst; The Long Voyage Home; Ile; The Moon of the Caribbees; In the Zone; The Hairy Ape; and Hughie.

What people say:

"O'Neill was not the first American to turn to one-act plays ... but there is no doubt that ... he perfected the form, just as Hemingway, a few years later, was to perfect the genre of the American short story." — from the introduction by Robert Brustein

"O'Neill belongs to that group of American authors, which includes Farrell and Dreiser, whose choice of vocation was a kind of triumphant catastrophe; none of these men possessed the slightest ear for the word, the sentence, the speech, the paragraph; all of them, however, have, so to speak, enforced the career they decreed for themselves by a relentless policing of their beat." — Tony Kushner

"O'Neill is the most American of our handful of dramatists who matter most." — Harold Bloom

"O'Neill singlehandedly waded through the dismal swamplands of American drama, bleak, squashy, and oozing sticky goo, and alone and singlehanded bore out the water lily that no American had found there before him." — George Jean Nathan

About the Playwright:

Eugene O'Neill (1889–1953), the father of American drama, the author of 49 plays, won four Pulitzer Prizes for drama, and is the only American playwright to have received a Nobel Prize (1936).
