Various Pulitizer prizes winner, the most conceited prize of North American literature, Eugene ONeill received a little from his familiar environment. Maybe because of the recognition and stability that the fictional life had provided to the author, this was the way chosen to talk about the failures of his family. The changes of accusations, the self punitive torment and the weakness of his father, mother, brother and the writer himself, comprise the theatrical play Long Days Journey Into Night
more » ... (Longa Jornada Noite Adentro). The settlement of accounts between the ONeills comes broken in the remarkable tragicity text. Memory and time, that show cyclic because they dont alter or ease the characters pain, they are executioners of this family ruined by blame and memories. The intention, therefore, of this present work is to show an analysis about the inherent tragicity in the work Long Days Journey Into Night by the playwright Eugene ONeill.
