Irish immigrant versus Yankee aristocrat--this is the deep- rooted conflict in O'Neill's A Touch of the Poet, a conflict he felt strongly in his own life. He did not live to write his planned cycle of eleven plays tracing the history of the Melody and Harford families; however, we are fortunate to have this, the first play, which contains some of his greatest characters and which reveals his extraordinary gifts as a dramatist.
