Winner of the Nobel prize for literature and 4 Pulitzer prizes, Eugene O'Neill is generally acknowledged as America's greatest playwright. The Emperor Jones is an expressionistic play much-admired for its powerful psychological portrayal of brute power, fear, and madness. The Hairy Ape combines elements of class struggle and surreal tragedy. Also includes Anna Christie.
Unabridged republication of the third edition of The Emperor Jones, as published by Stewart Kidd Co., Cincinnati, 1921, and The Hairy Ape and Anna Christie as published by Boni & Liveright, New York, 1922.
