The Iceman Cometh

The Iceman Cometh - Eugene O'Neill This edition has a great Forward by [a:Harold Bloom|236|Harold Bloom|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1212940902p2/236.jpg].

Honestly, I'm not a big Harold Bloom fan, but I learned a great deal about The Iceman Cometh by reading his commentary. It's worth investing the ten or fifteen minutes it takes to get through it.

Here's my favorite quote from Bloom:

"To deprive the derelicts of hope is right, and to sustain them in their illusory "pipe dreams" is right also."
