Quote #10

I mean it as a tribute to your love and tenderness which gave me the faith in love that enabled me to face my dead at last and write this playwrite it with deep pity and understanding and forgiveness for all the four haunted Tyrones (E).

We discuss this quite a bit in "What's Up with the Epigraph?" but it deserves a place here too, since we can't overstate the importance of memory and the past to this play. It's interesting that the play itself is based on O'Neill's own memories. (E.2)
