I am not an O'Neill fan, but his writing is so smooth and seamless to read. Pleasurable, even though the subject matter is so dark and desperate. A washed up miserly alcoholic actor who loves his dope fiend wife, with a drunken lout of an older don and a consumptive younger son. The family loved and hates eachother for what thry are. All hate Tyrone's miserly ways. Mary blsmes his cheapness for the death of a son years ago. The sons and Tyrone are in dispair as Mary sinks into her addiction. The youngest has tried to get away from the family, but has returned only to be struck with TB. This is basically a day in the life of a family thet wants to live, but is in such dark denial that every minute is a struggle to retain a shred of humanity. ( )

This play undid me. The four damaged Tyrones will be with me for a long time. ( )

One of my favorite plays of all time. Saw the production with Jason Robards, and also saw Olivier play Tyrone. The monologues and dialogue between the brothers and Tyrone--a marvel. ( )

Wow, what a depressing and dull read. I cannot imagine what it would have been like to actually sit there and watch this on a stage. I appreciate the style O'Neill brought with him when it came to details. That was really unusual and interesting. However, none of the characters were even somewhat likable and the story was so depressing. After reading this I am much more grateful for my family. We have our problems but nothing like this. I think it is worthwhile to take a look at this play because O'Neill's style is so different, but don't be surprised if you hate it. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0300093055, Paperback)

This work is interesting enough for its history. Completed in 1940, Long Day's Journey Into Night is an autobiographical play Eugene O'Neill wrote that--because of the highly personal writing about his family--was not to be released until 25 years after his death, which occurred in 1953. But since O'Neill's immediate family had died in the early 1920s, his wife allowed publication of the play in 1956. Besides the history alone, the play is fascinating in its own right. It tells of the "Tyrones"--a fictional name for what is clearly the O'Neills. Theirs is not a happy tale: The youngest son (Edmond) is sent to a sanitarium to recover from tuberculosis; he despises his father for sending him; his mother is wrecked by narcotics; and his older brother by drink. In real-life these factors conspired to turn O'Neill into who he was--a tormented individual and a brilliant playwright.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:21:30 -0400)

James Tyrone, a semiretired actor, is vain and miserly; his wife Mary feels worthless and retreats into a morphine-induced haze. Jamie, their older son, is a bitter alcoholic.*
