A Play in One Act

  • Eugene O'Neill; Foreword by Edward Albee; Introduction by Louise Bernard


"[T]he long-overdue addition of Exorcism to his body of work . . . helps us see a little more clearly into the dark soul of one of America's greatest dramatists."—Colin Dabkowski, Buffalo News

Exorcism opens a window on the moment in 1912 when O’Neill bottomed out. . . . His early writings are filled with intertextual references. The freshness and originality of his early work was consistent with the larger trend of modernist literature—deeply embedded in a world of reused words.”—William Davies King, Eugene O’Neill Review

“A kind of portrait of the artist as a young man.”— NPR

Exorcism's most enduring message may be that, even with artists,the drama on stage is no less real than that of everyday life.”— Heather Horn, The Atlantic Wire
