Abstract

This research paper is mainly concerned with the study of Eugene O' Neill's drama Long Day's Journey into Night as far as the idea of the past is concerned. For the playwright the past is very significant insofar it determines the present, which is the spring-board into the future. The past in this play shows that it has tremendous influence on character and action. The play also sheds light on those autobiographical aspects which the dramatist makes use of to form his ideas about the past and its importance to human life.

Keywords: O'Neill's, Playwright.
