The sky "is the father of the modern drama Eugene o 'neill well-known, the poetic tragedy tells the story of a people dream for the story. The theme of this has the following kinds of typical view: The ShiXianRong etc of the American literature "thought:" the author want to show that people tend to also don't know what you want, or say, dream, not necessarily suit their needs." WangYiQun think: "author is praised for the ideal character the persistent pursuit, and with a sympathetic tone write unrealistic idealist in reality the miserable scene of inevitable before, the work with a kind of fatalism color."
Woolf, Virginia FeiLuo Ed's point of view: "" you can't have them outside of the two themes: the first is the dream of encouraging the necessity, the second is people to explore containing the true meaning of life secret that shares of the mysterious force behind life to."
Shi said not touched theme, can only be regarded as "FuTi", wang said stay in surface, no explore the deep implication, eph said more comprehensive, but the first point with pragmatism view of dream, ignoring its metaphysical meaning, the second of the author describes not much, in the also only as "FuTi". more paper argues that the sky outside "theme: dream of people has the ontological significance. No matter whether there is a dream or implementation possibility, is the person (human) can not lack also can't give up, because it gives existence to value. Below will try to discuss.
In the first act, Robert will go out to sea, to realize the long-cherished wish for many years, to "pursue the hidden in the horizon outside of the secret", go to the sea for many years the call of the response. Before I leave, see the brother Ann zhu's sweetheart rose, confesses to her love. Rose in wonder she love more than the expression and but he was not, and pray for him to stay. When Robert met a Hamlet type of problem: "go to, or stay, this is a problem." You must be in between choice. In Lucy's emotional offenses, Robert shaken, finally decided to stay. In order to for peace, Robert had to, comfort to think "I think the secret, from the world to call me on the edge of the secret, you can't have them outside of the secret, must be love. I didn't go to find it, it find me. Oh, rose, we love than any of the d
mosses tong sought seeks ?
of rotor yue choose?
The second act Robert due to an inability to poor management and make farmstead, in real life in the mud, but he was still fail to the dream of the distraction, listen to his expression: "oh, oh, oh, those damned mountain over there, yes, I had thought that they will agree to bring me a lot of hope! Now I have become hate them! They just like a narrow prison walls all around the courtyard, lock me inside, with all the free life and magical things off. Sometimes I want to, if it weren't for you, rose, and the little Mary, I will throw away all, along the road down, the in the mind only holding a XiangTou-the whole faraway places in my middle, with those mountain to breathe again a!!!!! I was dreaming again-the former silly dream."
And when his brother about the terrible, zhu sea, Oriental dirty, and he is very hard to maintain the
dream in his idea of the status "Robert (glanced at his brother of disgust, shrinking) 'so you in the east found is a smell of?'" "from your letter on look, some places you liked it, such as Sydney, Buenos Aires."
Robert due to the fetters of life, can't find the mountains, the outside what some, but he still is to have a dream coming back for more. He refused to Ann zhu's help, lost Ruth love, ruined farms in gradually on supported earnestly, life of the swamp deeper. This scene can say to give up the dream Robert afterthoughts.
The third act, five years after the circumstances of Robert already at the end of their tether: farmstead barren, is in debt; Husband and wife parents, every couple; Daughter sick, unfortunately failed; Their mortally ill, gravely ill. But he still have dreams: "... rose, you know I lay in the dark dream? I was going to, I was ill, we should have a what kind of future... now, Ann came back-I want take out my haughtiness, Lucy!

In the city, and I won't let you feel embarrassed. I'm going to prove to you that I read a book is a little use. I want to write something, or do that sort of thing. I often want to write something. Do you like it, Lucy?" - -the future planning is the new dream for Robert, far from the sea to the nearest town shift, from looking for the secret of the sky to be a writer as breadwinners, this new dream to many, this suggests that Robert in under the pressure of life have disillusioned, began to consider some feasibility strong business, but it is still a dream. Robert almost nothing, soon after his life will no longer belongs to him, but he still have a dream, the dream is a part of his life, he is to go on living pillar. No matter what is the specific content of the dream, as long as have a dream will have hope, hope to the person with the courage of life, from this point on look, Robert's new plan, is not a nonsense. Have a dream of the sacred side, should not be laughed at. Robert in nothing, the still gripped dream hand, makes the life of compassion.
When Robert learned that he was about to die, he is a man go to the bank while watching the sunrise, in his last words in no pain, only joy "... I finally get happiness-freedom--free!-from the farm, free to go free roaming-always roaming down! Look! The hills outside not beautiful?
