    Universally acclaimed as America’s greatest playwright, Eugene O’Neill was born in 1888 in the heart of the theater district in New York City. As the son of an actor he had early exposure to the world of the theater. He attended Princeton University briefly in 1906, but returned to New York to work in a variety of jobs before joining the crew of a freighter as a seaman. Upon returning from voyages to South Africa and South America, he was hospitalized for six months to recuperate from tuberculosis. While he was recovering, he determined to write a play about his adventures on the sea. He went to Harvard, where he wrote the one-act Bound East for Cardiff. It was produced on Cape Cod by the Provincetown Players, an experimental theater group that was later to settle in the famous Greenwich Village theater district in New York City. The Players produced several more of his one-acts in the years between 1916-1920. With the full-length play Beyond the Horizon, produced on Broadway in 1920, O’Neill’s success was assured. The play won the Pulitzer prize for the best play of the year. O’Neill was to be awarded the prize again in 1922, 1928, and 1957 for Anna Christie, Strange Interlude, and Long Day’s Journey Into Night. Although he didn’t receive the Pulitzer prize for it, Mourning becomes Electra, produced in 1931,is arguably his most lasting contribution to the American theatre. In 1936, he was awarded the Nobel Prize.

    O’Neill’s plays, forty-five in all, cover a wide range of dramatic subjects, but several themes emerge, including the ambivalence of family relationships, the struggle between the sexes, the conflict between spiritual and material desires, and the vision of modern man as a victim of uncontrollable circumstances. Most of O’Neill’s characters are seeking for meaning in their lives. According to his biographers, most of the characters were portraits of himself and his family. In a sense, his work chronicled his life.

    1. How many times was O’Neill awarded the Pulitzer Prize?

    A. Five B. Three C. Four D. One

    2. The word “briefly” in paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to__________.

    A. without enthusiasm B. on scholarship

    C. seriously D. for a short time

    3. What does the author mean by the statement in paragraph 2: “According to his biographers, most of the characters were portraits of himself and his family. In a sense, his work chronicled his life”?

    A. His biographers took pictures of him with his family.

    B. His biography contained stories about him and his family.

    C. He had paintings of himself and members of his family.

    D. He used his family and his own experiences in his plays.

    4. The author mentions all of the following as themes for O’Neill’s plays EXCEPT__________.

    A. adventures at sea B. life in college

    C. relationships between men and women D. family life

    5. We can infer from information in the passage that O’Neill’s plays were not __________.

    A. autobiographical B. controversial

    C. popular D. optimistic

    XI. Exercise 3: Gap-filling. Fill in each numbered blank with ONE suitable word. (20 points)

    Every culture has its own unwritten list of behavior that is acceptable. Every society .....(1)..... has its taboos, or types of behavior that are considered the violation of .....(2) ..... manners. If you travel to .....(3) ...another.. country, on business or vacation, it is really helpful to learn some of that country's customs so that you needn't insult .....(4) ....with. local people there.

In spite of people's common thought, .....(8)....there. are not universal and they tend to be specific to certain .....(9)..... or country, and usually form around a community’s values and beliefs.

    Universally acclaimed as America’s greatest playwright, Eugene O’Neill was born in 1888 in the heart of the theater district in New York City. As the son of an actor he had early exposure to the world of the theater. He attended Princeton University briefly in 1906, but returned to New York to work in a variety of jobs before joining the crew of a freighter as a seaman. Upon returning from voyages to South Africa and South America, he was hospitalized for six months to recuperate from tuberculosis. While he was recovering, he determined to write a play about his adventures on the sea. He went to Harvard, where he wrote the one-act Bound East for Cardiff. It was produced on Cape Cod by the Provincetown Players, an experimental theater group that was later to settle in the famous Greenwich Village theater district in New York City. The Players produced several more of his one-acts in the years between 1916-1920. With the full-length play Beyond the Horizon, produced on Broadway in 1920, O’Neill’s success was assured. The play won the Pulitzer prize for the best play of the year. O’Neill was to be awarded the prize again in 1922, 1928, and 1957 for Anna Christie, Strange Interlude, and Long Day’s Journey Into Night. Although he didn’t receive the Pulitzer prize for it, Mourning becomes Electra, produced in 1931,is arguably his most lasting contribution to the American theatre. In 1936, he was awarded the Nobel Prize.

    O’Neill’s plays, forty-five in all, cover a wide range of dramatic subjects, but several themes emerge, including the ambivalence of family relationships, the struggle between the sexes, the conflict between spiritual and material desires, and the vision of modern man as a victim of uncontrollable circumstances. Most of O’Neill’s characters are seeking for meaning in their lives. According to his biographers, most of the characters were portraits of himself and his family. In a sense, his work chronicled his life.

    1. How many times was O’Neill awarded the Pulitzer Prize?

    A. Five B. Three C. Four (năm 1920, 1922, 1928, 1957) D. One

    5. We can infer from information in the passage that O’Neill’s plays were not __________.
