Abstract: Stage directions as an important component of a play have been neglected in drama study. Until the appearance of modern drama in which stage directions are playing a significant role, with the typical example of The Theater of Absurd represented by Samuel Beckett’s Act without Words, stage directions began to be attached with great importance. Eugene O’Neil as one of the greatest dramatist have used a considerable amount of stage directions in his plays, including Long Day’s Journey Into Night which won him the Pulitzer Prize for the third time. In this play, stage directions have been used either to describe the characters, to direct the actor’ s action, or to depict the stage settings. This paper is aimed to analyze the contributions of the stage directions to some aesthetic values, such as characterization and plot development. Through drawing inferences from the stage directions describing the main characters, it may become more clear in what way they help to portray the characters.
