The Hairy Ape” Reflection

The Hairy Ape” Reflection

This week’s reflection will be based on questions from the text. Read The Hairy Ape  and answer the questions.

· How does O’Neill distort the realism of his scenery and characters to emphasis his working class themes? Consider, for instance, the introduction to Scene 1 and the robotic movements of the crowd on Fifth Avenue in Scene 5. What is O’Neill implying through these distortions?

· As seen in the play, describe the work and the working conditions aboard the ship. Is the situation fair to the workers? Explain.

· Describe Yank. Why is he so angry? How has his childhood and the industrial cultures affected his development?
