Literary Landmarks: Eugene O'Neill's Monte Cristo

Eugene O'Neill Monte Cristo Cottage, New London, Conn., is the boyhood summer home of Nobel prize playwright Eugene O'Neill. The 1840ís cottage is named in honor of his father, the actor James OíNeill and his most popular role as Edmond Dantes in The Count of Monte Cristo. The Cottage is the setting for two of OíNeillís most notable works, Long Days Journey Into Night and Ah, Wilderness!. Currently the Cottage operates as a museum featuring a permanent exhibition on the life and works of Eugene OíNeill and an extensive collection of artifacts and memorabilia.
