Winner of the Nobel Prize This edition includes Anna Christie, The Emperor Jones , and The Hairy Ape three classic plays of uncontested power from the Nobel laureate and winner of two Pulitzer Prizes for drama. In Anna Christie, a sailor reunites with his estranged daughter after years apart. As she begins to fall in love with a younger sailor, she realizes she must come clean to her father and her new love interest and reveal her troubled past. In The Emperor Jones, African American fugitive, Brutus Jones, recounts his life through a series of flashbacks as he runs from rebelling subjects through a West Indies Jungle, showing just how he came to rule over a small island, and his eventual downfall. In The Hairy Ape, O Neil explores class and identity as he follows the existential crisis of Yank, an engine worker for an ocean liner. After being called a beast from the daughter of a rich industrialist, Yank realizes he has no place in modern society, or even a class he can call his own.
