Universally acclaimed as America's greatest playwright, Eugene O’Neill was born in 1888 in the heart of the theatre district in New York City. As the son of an actor he had early exposure to the world of the theatre. He attended Princeton University briefly in 1906, but returned to New York to work in a variety of jobs before joining the crew of a freighter as a seaman. Upon returning from voyages to South Africa and South America he was hospitalized for six months to recuperate from tuberculosis. While he was recovering, he determined to write a play about his adventures on the sea.
He went to Harvard, where he wrote the one-act Bound East for Cardiff. It was produced on Cape Cod by the Provincetown Players, an experimental theater group that was later to settle the famous Greenwich Village theater district in New York City. The Players produced several more of his one-acts in the years between 1916-1920. With the full-length play Beyond the Horizon, produced on Broadway in 1920,O’Neill’s success was assured. The play won the Pulitzer prize for the best play of the year. O'Neill was to be awarded the prize again in 1922,1928, and 1957 for Anna Christie, Strange Interlude, and Long Day's Journey Into Night. In 1936, he was awarded the Nobel prize for literature.
0'Neill's plays, forty-five in all, cover a wide range of dramatic subjects, but several themes emerge, including the ambivalence of family relationships, the struggle between the sexes, the conflict between spiritual and material desires, and the vision of modem man as a victim of uncontrollable circumstances. Most of 0'Neill's characters are seeking for meaning in their lives. According to his biographers, most of the characters were portraits of himself and his family. In a sense, his work chronicled his life.
|1. This passage is a summary of 0'Neill's||(A) work (B) life (C ) work and life (D) family|
|2. How many times was O'Neill awarded the Pulitzer prize?||(A) One (B) Three (C) Four (D) Five|
|3. The author mentions all of the following as themes for O’Neill’s plays EXCEPT||(A) life in college (B) adventures at sea (C) family life (D) relationships between men and women|
|4. The word "briefly" in line 3 is closest in meaning to||(A) seriously (B) for a short time (C) on scholarship (D) without enthusiasm|
|5. The word "It" in line 6 refers to||(A) Harvard (B) one-act play (C) theater group (D) theater district|

Britain's colonial past
Food from the Colonies
How did the following everyday foods shape the history of Britain, Ireland and the USA?
In 1600 the East India Company was formed under Elizabeth I to compete with Dutch traders I in the oriental spice trade. The company was given a monopoly on all goods imported to England from Asia. From the 1750s the company became more ambitious, starting to invade and conquer parts of India. It was now the biggest company in the world, and also an unofficial arm of the British government. When Queen Victoria came to the throne in 1837, the whole of India was under British rule, and she was made Empress of India. When she died in 1901, the British Empire had expanded so much that it included one fifth of the total population of the world.
As tea and coffee grew in popularity in Britain in the 18th century, the demand for sugar to sweeten them also grew. Sugar plantations in the West Indies owned by European colonists needed more workers, so their owners imported slaves from West Africa. A circular trade developed and islands such as Jamaica and the Bahamas became British colonies. Ships from Britain carried cotton and metal goods to Africa, where they were traded for slaves, who were taken on a three-month voyage to the West Indies. They were traded with the plantation owners for sugar, and the sugar returned to Britain. Georgian Britain, especially the ports of Liverpool and Bristol, grew rich on the profits of the slave trade, turning a blind eye to the cruelty and the suffering involved.
The East India Company also held a monopoly on the import of Chinese tea, which became popular and fashionable in the 18th century. Trading posts around China such as Singapore and Hong Kong soon became colonies. At the same time, people in America, which the British had colonised in Elizabethan times, were protesting about high taxes on the import of common goods from England. A revolutionary group called the Sons of Liberty began turning back British tea ships from American ports, and in 1775 they threw tea worth thousands of pounds into Boston Harbour. The 'Boston Tea Party' was the first of many acts of rebellion that quickly led to war with England and, in 1776, to American independence.
