Eugene O’Neill’s autobiographical play Long Day’s Journey into Night is regarded as his finest work. First published by
Yale University Press in 1956, it won the Pulitzer Prize in 1957 and has since sold more than one million copies. This
edition includes a new foreword by Harold Bloom.
By common consent, Long Day’s Journey into Night is Eugene O’Neill’s masterpiece. . . . The helplessness of family love
to sustain, let alone heal, the wounds of marriage, of parenthood, and of sonship, have never been so remorselessly and
so pathetically portrayed, and with a force of gesture too painful ever to be forgotten by any of us.”Harold Bloom,
from the foreword

greatest dramatists.”Jose Quintero
The play is an invaluable key to its author’s creative evolution. It serves as the Rosetta Stone of O’Neill’s life and
The definitive edition of a play of old sorrow, written in tears and blood,’ as O’Neill described it in dedicating it
to his wife, Carlotta.”Boston Globe
