All good wishes to you!?Eugene O?Neill?s ?Strange Interlude? won the 1928 Pulitzer Prize in Drama. He also won the Pulitzer for ?Beyond the Horizon? (1920), ?Anna Christie? (1922), and ?Long Day?s Journey Into Night? (1957). In 1936, O?Neill won the Nobel Prize in Literature.John O?Hara (1905-1970) began writing short stories in the late 1920s. Over 200 of them appeared in ?The New Yorker.? He published his first novel, ?Appointment in Samarra,? in 1934, after O?Neill wrote this letter. His later books include ?Butterfield 8? (1935) and ?Pal Joey? (1939). Although mostly known for his novels and short stories, O?Hara published ?Pagan Sonnet? in 1923 when he was 18.

A pillar of both the Irish and British literary establishments, in his later years he served as an Irish Senator for two terms. Yeats was a driving force behind the Irish Literary Revival and, along with Lady Gregory, Edward Martyn, and others, founded the Abbey Theatre, where he served as its chief during its early years. In 1923 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature as the first Irishman so honoured for what the Nobel Committee described as "inspired poetry, which in a highly artistic form gives expression to the spirit of a whole nation." Yeats is generally considered one of the few writers who completed their greatest works after being awarded the Nobel Prize; such works include The Tower (1928) and The Winding Stair and Other Poems (1929). Yeats was a very good friend of American expatriate poet and Bollingen Prize laureate Ezra Pound. Yeats wrote the introduction for Tagore's Gitanjali, which was about to be published by the India Society.Condition:Condition is Very Good/Excellent.  Small wear to edges of jacket, faint spotting to lower back of jacket, pages/hinges/text block are very good/excellent for over 80 years old!!!

      Silent member of the legendary Marx Brothers comedy team, whose films include "Duck Soup" (1933) and "A Night at the Opera" (1935). Autograph Letter Signed ("Harpo"), 1p, 7¼" X 10½", Cathedral City, CA, n.y. [probably summer 1961]. Addressed to Don (Woolf). Near fine. In this rare example of a Harpo ALS, written on "El Rancho Harpo" letterhead, Harpo writes to an executive with a greeting card publisher, California Artists, which published a series of Christmas cards featuring artwork by movie stars. "Here is my Xmas painting," he writes. "Hope it is not too late for your market. If you use it I would like to send them out as my own personal cards also." Harpo had long been interested in civil rights and the African-American cause, so the closing of this letter is quite appropo: "Would like to stick to my original choice of N.A.A.C.P. to receive royalties, if any." Full letters in Harpo's hand are quite scarce, and one with choice, unusual content such as this doubly so. Accompanied by a modern matte finish printed 8" X 10" photograph depicting the four Marx Brothers at the height of their fame.
