Comments Desire Under the Elms & The Great God Brown

  1. My favorite Bunuel is not one of his 70s surrealist films but his adaptation of Wuthering Heights from his time in Mexico during the 50s The characters are entirely at the mercy of their passions, which run high and move them to actions which are irreversibly catastrophic This play reminds me quite a lot of that film the characters here are also very unlikable, flawed, and overly dramatic but that s what makes them compelling I liked his description of Abbie Putnam s round face as pretty but mar [...]


  2. When I was twelve, I thought this was pretty good, but I ve since seen the light Desire Under the Elms is hilariously awful overheated to the point of rot About a Southern patriarch whose young, sexy wife gets knocked up by his son In the movie version, these roles are played by, respectively, Orson Welles, Sophia Loren, and Anthony Perkins Yes, you read me right No, I m afraid it s not even a guilty pleasure.


  3. A Tough accent to follow I guessed it was to be southern, but actually New England Ephraim Cabot is 76 and tough, outliving two wives Two sons by wife 1 leave the farm after being given by Eben by wife 2 to go seek gold in CA He wants clear ownership of the farm The father comes home with a 25 yr old bride Abbie, hated loved by Eben Ephraim thinks her baby is his, the whole town figures out otherwise, Abby kills the baby to keep Eben, but he claims he helped her Greek tragedy God.


  4. If you want to work in American theater, you have to have read the big three Williams, Miller and O Neill I held out for as long as I could on that last one Oh my gosh, O Neill is boring Brilliant But boring.So, Desire You see, there are these elm trees And under them is a house And in the house, people are hot for each other, or desire each other, if you will Get it But seriously I d probably be all into this if I saw it And after I left the theater, I d complain a lot, but while I was there I [...]


  5. I cannot recommend O Neill enough This one, though, isn t one I would recommend starting with, necessarily It seemed a bit action than psychology, plot than character, than has been my experience with O Neill otherwise Still, worthwhile reading.First line God Purty Selected line I want t share with ye, Abbie prison r death r hell r anythin If I m sharin with ye, I won t feel lonesome, leastways.


  6. A play depicting the initial instinct of almost all the humans in the world, the instinct of desiring the instinct of commanding the instinct of capturing the instinct of ruling the instinct of leading the desire the most basic cause of grief among humans Here too, the desire dominates, and the rest are ignored and revolve around the theme of desire Desire says the Buddha is the cause of the Grief,But how do one escape this binding vine of Love


  7. Love O Neill Do not love this play It is a Phaedra meets Power of Darkness set in New England The speech is even purposefully colloquial like Tolsto s play As a dramatist who steals shamelessly, I m not knocking the theft but when an excellent dramatist steals from another excellent dramatist, disappointment is just not something I expect.


  8. Another masterful play by the renowned American author who works to place plot elements and themes of Greek tragedy in a modern setting In a letter about his plays from this period, O Neill stated that his aim was to see the transfiguring nobility of tragedy, in as near the Greek sense as one can grasp it, in seemingly the most ignoble, debased lives.


  9. O Neill covers Phaedra and Medea at the same time Beautifully written, mid 19th century American transplantation of mythological classics This exploration of lust and possession provides a quaint reading for the afternoon A nice mix of the homey, kitchen sink dramas of early American Realism and the terrorizing, psychological darkness of O Neill s personal brand of expressionism.


  10. okay I am a lover of Eugene O Neill s worksI had the pleasure of being the stage manager in an off Broadway Production It s inthe genre of Harper lee,and John Steinbeck such rich writing and it was nice to give my husband at thetime the role of Sherriff in the off off Broadway production.
