|Title:||Long Day's Journey into Night: Modernism, Post-Modernism and Maternal Loss||Authors:||Meaney, Gerardine||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/6017||Date:||2009||Abstract:||Long Day's journey into Night may seem a strange starting place for a feminist analysis of modernism and post-modernism. Yet even the most conservative criticism reads this play as an enactment and embodiment of loss, specifically loss of the mother. That loss is rarely seen in the context of a more general "loss", a cultural loss of legitimacy and authenticity, endemic in and enabling modernism, articulated as "disinheritance" by an Other "coded as feminine."||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Chelsea House||Keywords:||O'Neill, Eugene, 1888-1953.
