The materialism and Homelessness is considered as a typical phemomenon of modern society, and it has become one of the major subjects of literature. Eugene O'Neill treated this theme in depth in his autobiographical play, Long Day's Journey into Night. In this play, the characters are controlled by past events, which serve as a direct cause of their present family situation. Unable to face realities, the Tyrones take refuse in what is most easily accessible to them - drug for Mary and alcohol for men. Isolated from one another, and absorbed in their own pipe reams, they try to escape from the pressing reality and their responsibility by shifting blame on one another. To trace the causes of Tragic enveloping the Tyrones, and to explore Dramatic Device to express Tragic Factor which they try to escape from the intolerable reality are the main concern of this thesis. The psychology underlying the characters's regressive behavior is explored as well. This play is full of inner action without physical action. The inner action of the play is developed continuously by the circular movement in dialogue. Characters also are brought out by these circles and the tragic action itself develops through these circles. O'Neill used many experimental techniques that proved extremely successful in the production of Long Day's Journey into Night. Special techniques used in the setting such as fog, a fog - horn and lighting, and masked dialogues and gestures help clarify the theme of this play. In fact, they are the elements that make what might easily be a tedious and over - long melodrama such a moving masterpiece. Through this play, O'Neill shows that man realize the meaning of the most valuable life by enduring the pain even though he is bound by tragic fate.
