Book Excerpt: 
. . .has been taking one gulp after another from his bottle, at first frightenedly, as if he were afraid to listen, then desperately, as if to drown his senses, but finally has achieved complete indifferent, even amused, drunkenness. Yank sees his lips moving. He quells the uproar with a shout.] Hey, youse guys, take it easy! Wait a moment! De nutty Harp is sayin' someth'n.

PADDY—[Is heard now—throws his head back with a mocking burst of laughter.] Ho-ho-ho-ho-ho—-

YANK—[Drawing back his fist, with a snarl.] Aw! Look out who yuh're givin' the bark!

PADDY—[Begins to sing the "Muler of Dee" with enormous good-nature.]

"I care for nobody, no, not I,
And nobody cares for me."

YANK—[Good-natured himself in a flash, interrupts PADDY with a slap on the bare back like a report.] Dat's de stuff! Now. . . Read More

I know, I know, another play for my Representative Plays class, and not your typical O'Neill, but, gosh darn it! It's good. Especially for prisoners. They really empathized with the lead character and had images and understandings of him that I would never have come up with in my own female/on-th...more

پیشتر، نوشته بودم چقدر مفصل درباره گوریل پشمالو و حواشیاش. البته موقع زدن دکمهی ارسال اینترنت گوشیام که در خانهی قدیمی درست و حسابی آنتن نمیداد قطع شد و نوشتهام پاک. انقدر بیحوصله شدم که پنجره را بستم و دیگر چیزی ننوشتم. اما حالا خودم را مجبور کردهام تا بیایم و کمی دیگر دربارهاش بنویسم تا رسمِ ری...more

این اولین نمایشنامه از یوجین اونیل است که میخوانم. نظرات مثبت زیادی درباره ی این نویسنده ی امریکایی شنیده بودم ولی هنوز فرصت نشده بود هیچ کدام از آثار او را بخوانم تا اینکه گوریل پشمالو رو خواندم و باعث شد حتما سراغ بقیه کارهای این نویسنده هم بروم.
نمایشنامه گوریل پشمالو به گفته ی خود اونیل...more

ولی تو خوش اقبالتری، حالیته؟ تو اینو میدونی که از قماش اونا نیسی. اما من نه، من از قماش اونام و میون اونام ..ولی دلم تنهاس.حالیته؟اونا از من نیسن، مسئله اینه. میفهمی که؟ فکر کردن خیلی سخته..

یک نمونه ی کامل و خوب از نمایشنامه در سبک مدرنیسم.
کشش فوق العاده ی نمایش و نمادین بودن عناصر که اصلا تو ذوق نمی زدو همزاد پنداری مایی که اسیر قفس این دنیاییم با شخصیت ینک. خیلی خوبه کلا :)

An expressionist study of the damaging effects of industrialism. Much more interesting than O’Neill’s earlier naturalist plays.

Hairy-Ape is a terrific drama narrating a story of a defiant Yank whose hubris and bellicose attitude constitute a thin end of the wedge and consequent demise. The story is simultaneously historic and universal since the protagonist stands in my opinion for every-man with one's existential dilemm...more

As an Indian, I grew up with a spiritual theatre tradition which was non-realistic and stylised, played on a bare arena stage (Kathakali, Koothu, Koodiyattam are some examples of our traditional stage) and at the same time, a secular theatre which was very realistic and play...more

কেনো যেনো ডারউইন সাহেবের পরতি এক ধরনের পরতিকরিয়া মনে হইলো বইটারে।

ও'নীল সাব, অনেকে বলেন দেখলাম, এখানে শরেণী সংঘাত এবং পরোলেতাড়িতের পরিচয় নিয়ে ঘাপিয়েছেন। কিনতু, আমার মনে হইলো, এইখানে যে ইয়াঙক, সে আসলে বিবরতনের পরতিকরিয়া। ঐ পরশনটা আর কী, আমরা কী চাইলেই পারবো, পরকৃতিতে ফিরে যাইতে, নিজেদের...more

اونیل از اون دسته نمایشنامه نویس هاییه که توی دستور صحنه اش از توصیف های داستانی استفاده می کنه و حتی جزئی تری ن چیزها رو هم بیان می کنه.
چیزی که توی این کار دوست داشتم جدای از بحث نقد جامعه شناختی اش پرداخت شخصیت از طریق حدیث نفس های فراوانش بود. به خصوص جاهایی که مردد می شد توی تصمیم گیری...more
