 How a serious illness gave Eugene O’Neill his dark literary power | PBS NewsHour. (Hat tip, G. E. Reutter.)

Seven months after his release from Gaylord Farm, O’Neill wrote a note of appreciation to his physician David R. Lyman expressing a wish to visit the sanatorium: “If, as they say, it is sweet to visit the place one was born in, then it will be doubly sweet for me to visit the place I was reborn in—for my second birth was the only one which had my full approval.”
