Long Day's Journey Into Night
Long Day's Journey into Night was written in 1940 but not staged until 1956, after O'Neill's death. Unashamedly autobiographical, it is, as he puts it himself in the dedicatory note, 'a play of old sorrow, written in tears and blood', a harrowing attempt to understand himself and his family.

First, I read the book. Then, I watched the movie, which I really enjoyed, but would not have appreciated had I not first read the book. Read full review

The model gut-wrenching family drama. Disconcerting, evocative, and well composed. I still prefer Tennessee Williams, but this certainly deserves praise and its "classic" label. Read full review
