About the Journal
The Eugene O’Neill Review publishes authoritative peer-reviewed essays and notes, aimed primarily at a community of scholars with a keen interest in O’Neill’s life and writings. Studies might focus on theatrical or literary history, including biography, or on critical interpretation or pedagogy. Consideration will be given to submissions on topics relevant to but not centrally concerned with O’Neill, including comparative work and work on O’Neill’s colleagues and collaborators in the Provincetown Players and elsewhere. Diverse methods and perspectives are encouraged; clear, correct, and readable prose is expected. By commission, we publish little-known or rediscovered documents, with appropriate contextualizing (Lost & Found); variously configured discussions among theater makers and other specialists (Practitioners’ Colloquia); reviews of dramatic performances and pertinent books; and reports of newly opened or augmented archives. Occasionally we publish creative work that represents or invokes O’Neill.
