Title Race Relation In Eugene O’neill’s Play“The Emperor Jones”: Interpretation Of The Character Of ‘Brutus Jones’.
 
Creator Ali, Ersad
 
Description “The Emperor Jones”(1920) by O’Neill is one of his finest plays that had won the admiration both of the spectators and critics.It is the first serious tragedy about a Negro.The play showd that even an ordinary American Negro could be the subject of a tragedy and Brutus Jones, a Negro, might rise to lofty heights of a tragic hero .According to some critics the play may be interpreted as a record of the shedding of masks acquired by the Negroes through their association with the Whites, and the gradual attainment of self- knowledge through sufferings.According to some other critics the play is a study in the gradual return and disintregation of Brutus Jones and his return to his primitive state.In the play there is the use of a Negro as the leading character.But it is not a question of superiority or inferiority of a race, but of the historical symbol which the Negro Brutus has become through centuries of bondage
