Beyond the Horizon (Google eBook)
The first of O'Neill's three Pulitzer Prize-winning plays, "Beyond the Horizon" was written in 1918. The drama revolves around two brothers, Robert and Andy, who live on their family's farm and both love the same woman, Ruth. While Robert longs to escape the farm and experience a long sea voyage, Andy wishes to remain on the Mayo farm and remain close to the land. Neither of these men realize their wishes, however, for Ruth's choice of husband begins the tragic downward spiral of the entire family. A story at once about the conflict of dreams and responsibility, choices and happiness, "Beyond the Horizon" is the innovative play of a dramatist destined to become one of America's greatest playwrights.
