In the course of my work on an international bibliography of modern drama studies published since 1966, I have located many substantial discussions of O'Neill which, for one reason or another, are not included in Jordan Y. Miller's excellent Eugene O'Neill and the American Critic: A Bibliographical Checklist (2nd ed., rev., 1973). About fifty of these, restricted to parts of books, appeared in the January 1979 issue of Eugene O'Neill Newsletter. The present list adds a few more chapters and sections in books, but features two types of material: whole books on O'Neill that scholars are apt to overlook, and articles that appeared neither in Miller's volume nor in my annual bibliographies compiled for Modern Drama since 1974. Perhaps half of the items cannot be found in the MLA International Bibliography or the Annual Bibliography of English Language and Literature: most, in other words, are genuinely elusive. Again, I welcome addenda to the addenda.
