Long Day's Journey into Night
Long Day's Journey into Night
by Eugene O'Neill
Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.24

5.0 out of 5 stars I would recommend that everyone should read or see this play., 31 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A brave insight into the dysfunctions of family life, illustrating how severe issues can be continually swept under the carpet for years and how generational differences are particularly problematic. This play is not unlike Death of a Salesman, however O'Neill's characters, based on his own family members, are easily identifiable and definitely garner both sympathy and respect. The familial debates run deeper than mere money issues, redefined roles and common regrets because there is a constant emphasis on shouldering the responsibility whilst deliberately neglecting to do so.
