The Hairy Ape - by Eugene O'Neil
Yank, a brutish stoker on board a freighter, is appalled when Mildred Douglas, a society girl, visits the stokehole. A powerhouse of a man, he has never been looked down on before nor suffered the insult “hairy ape” flung at him by the rich girl. At first he seeks vengeance for the insult, but broods over it until more than anything, he desires to understand it. When the ship reaches port, he seeks her out in her upper class surroundings, determined to grasp the meaning of the encounter.
