Overview

American playwright, and Nobel laureate in Literature. His plays are among the first to introduce into American drama the techniques of realism, associated with Russian playwright Anton Chekhov, Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen, and Swedish playwright August Strindberg. His plays were among the first to include speeches in American vernacular and involve characters on the fringes of society, engaging in depraved behavior, where they struggle to maintain their hopes and aspirations, but ultimately slide into disillusionment and despair. Nearly all of his plays involve some degree of tragedy and personal pessimism.



Notable award(s): Nobel Prize in Literature (1936)&Pulitzer Prize for Drama (1920, 1922, 1928, 1957)
