On Raging Political Strife: A Long Day's Journey into Night


Katherine Hepburn
Current political events and discourse are somehow somehow reminiscent of the exhausting experience of witnessing a production of A Long Day's Journey into Night.

As if achingly punctuated by Katharine Hepburn's natural tremors, the tenor of discourse embedded in the current American political landscape can so easily thrust one into remembrances of Eugene O'Neill's harrowing and devastating autobiographical tale of horrific turbulence, replete with all sorts of critical character assassinations, addictions to polarized social positions and distateful rejections of historical legacies.

How difficult it is to keep all of this from utterly wearing one down as the horrible political journey continues from chapter to chapter, seemingly unabated. Welcome, one might be tempted to sometimes muse, to the world of Hell.
