About Desire Under the Elms
An American literary classic, Desire Under the Elms follows the tragic story of a widower and his sons and each of their competitive struggle for recognition and inheritance. Ephraim Cabot is an old man of amazing vitality who loves his New England farm with a greedy passion. Hating him, and sharing his greed, are his sons bore from two prior wives Cabot overworked into early graves. Most bitter of these sons is Eben, whose mother had owned most of the farm, and therefore believes he should be sole heir. When the old man brings home a new wife, Anna, she becomes a fierce contender to inherit the farm. The family splinters as some members leave for new opportunities while others stay and succumb to desire, fear, vengeance, and rage.
