Art & Negativity

When O'Neill's Mourning Becomes Electra opened in New York in 1931 to critical and popular raves, ultimately delivering the highest acclaim of his career, one reviewer was not delighted:

"The dead, the dying, the insane, the abnormal, filled the stage before us. To a cheery start-off of two murders, [O'Neill] added two suicides and tossed in a heavy seasoning of vengeance, insanity, adultery and incest."
