Answer: The Iceman Cometh

"The Iceman Cometh", a tragedy in four acts by Eugene O'Neill, which was written in 1939 and produced and published in 1946, is considered by many to be his finest work. The drama exposes the human need for illusion and hope as antidotes to the natural condition of despair.

Answer: Main Street

"Main Street", a novel by Sinclair Lewis, was published in 1920. The story of "Main Street" is filtered through the eyes of Carol Kennicott, a young woman married to a Midwestern doctor who settles in the Minnesota town of Gopher Prairie (modeled on Lewis's hometown of Sauk Centre).
