About the Author

Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature and four Pulitzer Prizes, Eugene O'Neill (1888-1953) is widely acknowledged as America's greatest playwright. Dover Thrift Editions of his works include Beyond the Horizon and Three Great Plays: The Emperor Jones, Anna Christie, and The Hairy Ape.


This play by Nobel laureate O'Neill centers around Anna, a young woman who, after an illness, decides to spend some time with the father she knows only from occasional letters. While with him, a coal barge captain, she meets Matt, a sailor who's ready to settle down, and the two fall in love. Believing herself unworthy of happiness, Anna reveals secrets from her past that test both her father's and Matt's love. In this expert production, scenes are painted through dialog and the unobtrusive use of sound effects. The actors reveal vivid and distinct characters, and the listener never has to wonder who's speaking. Highly recommended to libraries that serve students and those who love theater.--Adrienne Furness, Lockport P.L., NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
