A madman's manifesto. Le plaidoyer d'un fou by August Strindberg( Book )

9 editions published between 1967 and 1981 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This autobiographical novel is based on Strindberg's life in the 1870s and 1880s, and focuses on his marriage to Siri von Essen. It purports to be a vehicle for explaining to himself his role in the relationship from its ecstatic beginnings to its catastrophic conclusion. Strindberg was writing at the time of the modern women's movement and the intense Nordic debate on sexual morality, and the novel echoes on an anguished personal level the theme of the battle of the sexes. It is one of his many and varied attempts to write his own life, to use himself as raw material." --Back cover

3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Selected plays by August Strindberg( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"August Strindberg is often considered the father of modern Swedish literature. His vast output of plays was innovative in style and form. Volume 1 of Selected Plays presents selections from the beginning of his career, before Strindberg's period of psychotic attacks in the 1890s. Master Olof (1872) is a historical drama set in early Reformation Sweden, influenced by Ibsen and Shakespeare. Two of his most produced plays today, The Father (1887) and Miss Julie (1888), are examples of his naturalistic plays. Strindberg described Creditors (1888), a tragicomedy, as his "most mature work." The Stronger (1889), a playlet, is a favorite in acting classes. Playing with Fire (1893) is one of his few comedies. These plays deal with Strindberg's preoccupation with power struggles and sexual warfare."--

2 editions published between 1974 and 1983 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A young woman comes from another world to see if life is really as difficult as people make it out to be." "In Strindberg's A Dream Play, written in 1901, characters merge into each other, locations change in an instant and a locked door becomes an obsessively recurrent image." "Caryl Churchill's new version was first staged at the National Theatre, London, in a production by Katie Mitchell."--Jacket

The son of a servant; the story of the evolution of a human being by August Strindberg( Book )

10 editions published between 1966 and 1975 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Son of a Servant is a profoundly moving coming-of-age novel that draws heavily on the author's own life experiences
