Warning: This play will not make you feel all warm and fuzzy, however, it will be one of the best plays you read in your lifetime.
Eugene O'Neill's, "Long Day's Journey into Night," not only holds a steadfast and sturdy place in my heart, but is also the receiver of many honorary awards and positive criticisms. The play is one of O'Neill's greatest works and also happens to be autobiographical. Incredibly sad and heart-wrenching, the plot centers around a family filled with addictions, regrets, and an obsession with the past. As with most playwrights, O'Neill's ability to create such a dynamic and touching story filled with literary merit using only dialogue is awe-inspiring. Although only half of a true piece of work (one must see it on stage to get the whole effect) it is a phenomenal piece of literature all on it's own. Any person who is pursuing any type of degree or career in literature or theatre has to read this book.
