What Monster like House Symbolizes in “Mourning Becomes Electra”


Thank you, that was really a good answer.

Now, let me know please what the monster like house symbolizes in Eugene O’Neil’s Mourning Becomes Electra?


You are welcome, and keeping giving your feedback.

The look of the house is exactly like a monster that swallows its own breed and its windows give the look of “revengeful eyes,” rejecting than accepting sunlight and shutters look like eyelids. We see the windows and shutters are open when play begins, however these were closed upon the return of Ezra and house looks like a death mask showing Christine’s evil spirit and Ezra’s life refusing Puritanism.
