The Anathema of Puritanism.

Block 17 Unit-78 Mourning Becomes Electra: Eugene O’Neill

Contact 92 qaisarjanjua hotmail. Educated at boarding schools, O'Neill gained admission to Princeton University but left after only one year to go to sea. He spent his early twenties living on the docks of Buenos Aires, Liverpool, and New York, sinking into an alcoholism that brought him to the point of suicide. A bout of tuberculosis left him incapacitated and he was consigned to a sanitarium for six months. While in recovery, O'Neill decided to become a playwright.

This is apparent in most of his plays. His early experience as a seaman supplies evidence for some other themes in his literary work. The sea and the South Sea Islands are among the wealth of his recurrent motifs. Another common pattern O'Neill uses and varies during his career is the pipe-dream, almost never to come true. After a short walk through the South Sea in literature and an outlining of O'Neill's literary background this essay will concentrate on Mourning Becomes Electra. The Blessed Isles show the desire for love, harmony, and sexual freedom of all protagonists in Mourning Becomes Electra. They are the counterpart for puritanism and civilization.

Cashing in. Taking a dirt nap. Pushing up Daisies. We've got hundreds of different names for it, but they all mean the same thing: death. Death hangs over Mourning Becomes Electra like a black curtain. It's everywhere—the title's about mourning, the characters are emotionally dead, the house is a tomb, the shadow of the war haunts the male characters, there are two murders, and suicide seems to be the coping strategy du jour. Death seems to be chasing everybody in the Mannon family, and it catches up to all of them one way or another.
