A play by Eugene O'Neill that was feared to be lost has been acquired by a library at Yale University after surfacing in a researcher's archives, providing insight into a suicide attempt by the only American playwright to receive the Nobel Prize for literature.
Thomas Connolly, a professor of English at Suffolk University, said the find is "absolutely extraordinary."
"For many O'Neillians, O'Neill's life qualifies as art. To have another piece of the puzzle is manna for heaven for them," he said.
