it was amazing

It's amazing how through dialogues it can evoke a deep picture of family life, regrets, living in the past, and love mingled with hate and resenment. Our to-be selves lost for what we ended up being. It's so human. So real. And thought-provocking. The passing of time. All characters flawed but human, loveable in spite of this. Eugene O'Neill is definitely one of the best playwrights. I've liked this one even more than Mourning Becomes Electra. Is full of sentiment. And it gives you a bit of insight in the mind of the author, since it's supposed to be kinda autobiographical.
