Review: A Dream Play by August Strindberg

(I read the Swedish version of the drama, the other cover is the English version with Caryl Churchills interpretation)

I haven´t read anything by August Strindberg before, but growing up in Sweden it´s completely impossible not being raised into knowing and believing he is one of the greatest authors coming from this long, northern country of ours. 937 more words

Some things never go out of fashion: 'The Red Room: Scenes of Artistic and Literary Life' by August Strindberg

It’s impossible to read much European literature from the turn of the century and not have run into Strindberg, as so many fictional characters gush and have epiphanies over his writings.  455 more words

Book Review

strindberg's 'easter' and absolution

I think about August Strindberg’s play Easter fairly often. I first read it when I was about eighteen, at a time in my life when I really enjoyed reading a play in a single sitting, usually in the afternoons. 676 more words
