    I'd never seen nor read this 1922 Pulitzer Prize winning play which was also awarded a Tony Award for best revival in 1993 but I listened to a good audio version this morning I suspect having seen a few of O'Neill's plays years ago that this will not be considered one of his best but it was engagingOld Chris a sailor meets his daughter Anna whom he hasn't seen for 15 years Thy both have lied about their past Mat Burke another sailor gets rescued and Anna and Mat fall in love There's a struggle for control of Anna between the two men who leave together on a boat bound for Cape Horn both committed to return to her The Big Reveal sorry spoiler alert that would have be shocking I imagine in a 1922 play is that when Anna left home she left because she had been raped by a relative was thus unable to marry and lived life as a prostitute All of the principal characters have lied about their pasts though so the basic move of the play is forgiveness of each other I have been readinglistening to a lot of great drama; this doesn't uite measure up to some of the others I have been reading but Anna is an interesting strong complex character maybe especially given the time it was written

    This award winning play by Eugene O'Neill was brought to the stage in the 1920's in both New York and London It has been revived several times over the years and was also made into a movie It's the story of a young girl returning home to her seafaring father trying to rebuild her life trying to find a safe harbor from a world of prostitution and maybe even find real love somehowIt won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1923 It also won a 1993 Tony Award in the US and an Oliver Award in England for best revival of a play

    As is the case with Eugene O'Neil's plays Anna Christie is sad depressing and makes you run for whiskey just like the way Greta Garbo immortalized the line Give me a whiskey ginger ale on the side and don't be stingy baby

  5. Kelly Kelly says:

    Most people know Anna Christie as the Garbo movie where the actress demanded Give me a whiskey ginger ale on the side and don't be stingy babyThe acerbic line comes straight from O'Neill's play but the real salt comes from Anna's father a cartoonish sailor with lines written in Swedish Chef style dialect he says pooty for prettyAnna's love interest is a nasty lout and he's plenty despicable A pat ending on top of the 2D characters keeps this from being great O'Neill but like the example above there are some fun one liners Worth reading out loud if you can keep a straight face

    This Pulitzer Prize winning drama from 1922 was surprisingly modern in its language I read this whilst listening to the Librivox recording which I found helpful for the Swedish Irish accents sometimes I had no trouble understanding the spoken word when the written dialect was difficultIn terms of plot it seemed strangely similar to Ibsen to me except for being set in America

    And it has even an extraordinary happy enfing

    Standard naturalist topics prostitution dysfunctional families alcohol but with an unusually happy ending

    This American play written in 1921 was one of two little Eugene O'Neill volumes that I decided to read back to backThe first scene opens with Chris Christopherson commonly known as Old Chris relaxing at a pub and telling fellow drinkers and friends about his daughter Anna Christie who is coming to visit him Chris hasn't seen his daughter since she was two years old which was 15 years ago Chris' ex wife was driven mad by her husband's occupation as a sailor and came to hate the sea and any men having anything to do with it And so long ago she took their child and moved to a safely landlocked state Now Anna is coming to visit her father for the first time and he isn't at all sure what to expect or how to actAnna arrives in town just a few pages later strolling into the same local pub that her father has just exited Her father knowing that Anna's mother will have brought her up to loathe the sea has lied to her and told her that he is a janitor but it doesn't take very long for Anna to discover that in reality her father is captain of a coal barge The scene ends with her being horrified and vowing that she will never stay with her father if it means living on the waterWhen the next scene opens apparently some time has passed and Anna seems to be taking to sea life very well She is enad by the sea and loves to simply stand on the deck for hours taking in the water the fog and the salty air Chris rather than being pleased does all he can to rid his daughter of this enchantment doing his best to portray the ocean and sailors in the worst light possibleShortly after a marooned sailor is rescued from the water and brought aboard the ship The man whose name is Burke takes an immediate fancy to Anna but it isn't until she sends him sprawling over the deck with a good punch for flirting that he falls in loveAnna though she has similar feelings is plagued by her knowledge that nothing can ever work out between she and Burke due to her past as a prostituteThis play had an interesting enough storyline to keep me reading and I finished it uickly in one sitting The characters are all simple realistic people that you can easily imagine as people whether on a stage or in real life And because the play is relatively short O'Neill doesn't waste any time moving from one scene to anotherI found the underlying character of the sea interesting Chris a man of the sea himself apparently agrees with his ex wife's sentiments about its evil Though he has held some respectable ranks as captain and bosun on other vessels before he is ashamed rather than proud of these accomplishments and is agonized when he hears his daughter boasting about them Rather than be happy that Anna discovers a love for the sea he is horrified He tells her dark tales of people being drowned terrible storms and portrays all sailors as duplicitous unscrupulous scoundrels Most of all he warns her against marrying a sailor who he says will only leave her for his first love the seaThe sea is portrayed as an addictive mistress that is both loved and hatedOf course in the end Anna does end up with a sailor He promises that he will never leave her for very long that he will take her with him on voyages when he can and that he will never even look at any of the other women in seaside ports But we have to wonder if this is true or if Chris is rightOf the two plays by O'Neill that I read the other being The Emperor Jones I liked this one best

    Just another one of O'Neil's mediocre early works The story is pretty good although I could have done without the over the top happy ending It gets bogged down by the same problem that haunts much of O'Neill's work His insistence on forcing the accents on the page Yes I understand he is writing a script not so much something to be read His insistence on writing the accents in so forcibly makes the works almost impossible to read and shows that he lacks confidence in his actors One could simply say in the stage directions that Chris speaks with a Swedish accent and Mat with an Irish one and let the actors do their work Instead he insists on creating illegible pages
