Eugene O'Neill's tale of Ephraim Cabot, greedy and hard like the stone walls that surround his farm, the family patriarch brings home his new young bride, Abbie. His grown sons dissaprove; one leaves but the other stays to fight for the family fortune. What follows is a tragedy of epic proportions.

    " What is it about true sadness and tragedy in fiction that attracts us? "God's Little Acre" and "Ethan Frome" being two other examples that have stuck with me over the years. Reading true sadness can be a very powerful medicine as we try to work our way through the daily grind. "

    " This has been one of my favorite reads for a very long time. I love the depth and development of all the characters, appreciating the imagery laid out by O'Neill. "

    " Absolutely revolting. Kind of interesting to read, though. To consume like an ungrateful cruel God. Eh'ya! "

    " Dialect in "Desire Under the Elms" was distracting, and "Strange Interlude" took a while to get going, but the Mourning Becomes Electra cycle is goooood. "

    " Can never get enough of O'Neill. Will read again in another year or two "

    " am planning on seeing the broadway production of "desire under the elms" with a co-worker. The story is tragic, but the vernacular of the characters is fun and quick -despite the darkness of the storyline "

    " Eugene O'Neill has a crazy way of creating real-life characters doing strange stuff -- and I agree with it. If you like reading plays, I recommend reading one of his. llw "

    " Read Desire Under the Elms and Strange Interlude in English 52: 20th Century Drama with Professor Donald Pease. "

    " O'Neill is an overlooked playwright who was once studied consistently in academia. He's intense and very talented. "
