The article describes the book "A Moon for the Misbegotten," by Eugene O'Neill. A well-made melodrama in which the expectations of melodrama are deliberately disappointed: Bernard Shaw has familiarized with the pattern and convinced that the disappointment may be more apparent and formal than substantial and real. O'Neill touches upon the central substances and realities of modern life and drama. He shows people not only torturing each other with words but also torture themselves with words.
