- Long Days Journey Into Night - 1,206 words
Long Days Journey Into Night It is understandable that so many people in our class did not find the last act of Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey Into Night a satisfying one; there is no tidy ending, no goodbye kisses or murder confessions; none of the charaters leave the stage with flowers in their hands or with smiles on their faces and none of the characters give explanatory monologues after the curtain falls, as we've become accustomed to by reading so much Shakespeare. O'Neill, though, isn't Shakespeare and Long Days Journey Into Night is as different from, say, A Midsummer's Night Dream or Twelfth Night than a pint of stout ale is from a glass of light chardonney. It is because of th ...

- Miss Julie And Mourning Becomes Electra - 534 words
Miss Julie And Mourning Becomes Electra In some works of literature a character who appears briefly or does not appear at all has a significant presence. Even though a character may not be present in a play, does not mean that they have no importance. In fact, these characters have more of an influence over the way the other characters act and speak. Two plays that exhibit this are Miss Julie, by August Strindberg and Mourning Becomes Electra, by Eugene O'Neill. In Mourning Becomes Electra, Ezra Mannon has a relatively small part; he is rarely even in the play, yet he has such an important role. He sets the mood to the play and his actions, even though he is not there, tell how the other cha ...

- The Iceman Cometh - 1,994 words
The Iceman Cometh Denial in The Iceman Cometh Denial is the refusal to admit the truth. It is the refusal to accept or acknowledge the reality or validity of a thing or idea. Many characters in The Iceman Cometh suffer from denial and false hope. O'Neill places these characters in the appropriate setting in which they are able to fantasize about their dreams. Amidst the drunken and misguided characters, O'Neill presents a few that the reader builds hope and sympathy for. Each character uses a pipe dream in order to be able to become blind to their downfalls and to reality. In the bar setting, characters in Eugene O'Neill's The Iceman Cometh portray the theme of denial by embracing pipe dream ...
