Beyond the horizon by Eugene O'Neill( Visual )

11 editions published between 1976 and 2006 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many of Eugene O'Neill's classic themes are present in his first full-length play, Beyond the Horizon, for which he won his first of four Pulitzer Prizes: Fantasy vs. reality, destiny subverted, sibling rivalry, and more. Rob Mayo is a young farmboy who reads poetry and dreams of going to sea; his brother Andy, a farmer through and through, wants nothing more than tilling this corner of the earth until his dying day. But both are in love with a girl named Ruth, and this conflict leads both to go against their deepest desires, leading to illness and unhappiness. Beyond the Horizon is justifiably overshadowed by O'Neill's later works, but the powers of his writing are still present. The well-received McCarter Theatre production is earnest and solid, and features Geraldine Fitzgerald (who garnered acclaim in many productions of O'Neill's work) and the great John Houseman
