The place: A cheap gin-mill in New York City. The time: a salesman's birthday celebration during the summer of 1912 when the delineation between hopes, dreams and pipe dreams disintegrates when 'self-knowledge' destroys self-respect, compassion and life.
"[This is an] exhaustive and (at four and a half hours in length) exhausting study of human delusion....The reason the play is so long (and schematic) is that the author tries to include every possible form of human illusion in his fable--political, religious, sexual, racial, moral, and psychological....O'Neill creates a series of generic types characterized by a single bony trait. It is the obligation of actors to add psychological flesh."
