It transposes the events of Aeschylus' Oresteia to a Puritanical family in New England, replacing the old acceptance of fate with a modern doctrine of psychological causation" (Hartnoll, 612). The trilogy "probably led to the award of the Nobel Prize in 1936, and on which his reputation largely rested until a decade and more after his death" (Black, 372).
