Eugene O'Neill's critics : voices from abroad by Horst Frenz( )

11 editions published between 1984 and 1997 in English and held by 2,235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

O?Neill?s plays have been translated into practically all major languages and have received remarkable performances in many countries. His impact has been such that since 1922, according to Tuck,?there has been an outpouring of opinions about the man, his experimental work, his universal qualities, his philosophical probings, his language, his dramatic method, and his forerunners in the theater, American as well as foreign.? As these 30 essays indicate, O?Neill was truly an international figure, stirring comment from all parts of the world. O?Neill?s stock rose considerably in 1936 when he received the Nobel Prize. His selection was applauded in Scandinavia as it confirmed the opinions of his work held in Sweden, Denmark, and Finland. The Nobel Prize also caused the critics of France to reevaluate his work, this time much more favorably. Summing up, Tuck notes that the?articles in this anthology reflect genuine attempts to present O?Neill as faithfully as possible throughout the world. O?Neill?s plays are not,? she observes,?for any one time or any one place, as indicated by the years the essays span (1922?80) and the number of countries they represent [17 in all].?

Three plays : The weavers ; Hannele ; The beaver coat by Gerhart Hauptmann( Book )

9 editions published between 1977 and 1999 in English and German and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Weavers, Hannele, and The Beaver Coat, belong to the early and dramatically most important period of Hauptmann's creative life. They show his great versatility, for only a versatile mind like Hauptmann's could produce a tragedy, a dream play, and a comedy in the same year ... It is characteristic of all three plays in this collection that Hauptmann does not give a definite conclusion to his conflict. More than once, he has pointed out that true drama has no ending and that a decision is often imposed upon a playwright who finds no clear-cut ending in life, who always sees new variations, new possibilities for breaking off the action. -- Introduction

Steppenwolf by Hermann Hesse( Book )

4 editions published between 1967 and 1981 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With its blend of Eastern mysticism and Western culture, Hesse's best-known and most autobiographical work is one of literature's most poetic evocations of the soul's journey to liberation. Harry Haller is a sad and lonely figure, a reclusive intellectual for whom life holds no joy. He struggles to reconcile the wild primeval wolf and the rational man within himself without surrendering to the bourgeois values he despises. His life changes dramatically when he meets a woman who is his opposite, the carefree and elusive Hermine. The tale of the Steppenwolf culminates in the surreal Magic Theater--For Madmen Only! Originally published in English in 1929, Steppenwolf's wisdom continues to speak to our souls and marks it as a classic of modern literature."--Publisher's website
