About this item

This literary study employs concepts of ecocriticism to explore the role of nature and the environment in the work of American playwright Eugene O’Neill, arguing that O’Neill’s highlight the place of nature in human affairs and the place of humans in nature. The author also looks at Classical and philosophical influences on O’Neill’s work. Chapters are grouped in sections on the early sea plays, land plays, pastoral/rural settings, and tropical/exotic settings. Works examined include Anna Christie, Desire Under the Elms, The Hairy Ape, The Emperor, The Iceman Cometh, Long Day’s Journey into Night.
