Johan August Strindberg was born on January 22nd 1849 in Stockholm in Sweden. It was only at the age of 32 that Strindberg managed to break through as a playwright with 'Master Olef'. Of course with a predecessor as famous as Henrik Ibsen overshadowing everything it was difficult, perhaps, to make headway. However Stringberg took to the task, exploring a wide range of styles, experimenting at every opportunity and with The Red Room wrote what is lauded as the first modern Swedish novel. His career spanned some 60 plays and another 30 novels and associated texts. Whilst he was prolific writer he was also something of a polymath, a telegrapher, theosophist, painter, photographer and alchemist. Much of the 1890's was spent abroad but several psychotic attacks between 1894 to 1896 (referred to as his "Inferno crisis") led to his hospitalisation and return to Sweden. His works continued to expand and reshape the boundaries of theatre and many are considered classics and deservedly so. Strindberg became ill with pneumonia during Christmas 1911 and never recovered completely. On April 9th 1912 he at last premiered in New York at the Berkeley Theatre with 'The Father'. He died on 14 May 1912 at the age of 63. Strindberg was interred in the Norra begravningsplatsen in Stockholm

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

12 editions published between 1955 and 1968 in English and Undetermined and held by 851 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A dream play by August Strindberg( Book )

156 editions published between 1901 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'A Dream Play', was based on Strinberg's own psychological and marital experiences. He watched Norwegian actress Harriet Bosse in a production of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' in 1900; shortly thereafter, he made her his wife and the Shakespeare dream play an inspiration, of sorts, for his own. The play is presented in a style quite different from Strindberg's usual aesthetic of realism. The main character is Agnes, a daughter of the Vedic god Indra, who descends to Earth to understand the problems of human beings. As Agnes encounters dozens of human characters who are suffering from cruelty, poverty, and the mundaneness of family life, she comes to the realisation that humanity is bleak and pitiful. Her final return to Heaven corresponds with an awakening from her dream-like state, and she no longer experiences the 'agony of existence' it is to be human

Gustav Adolf by August Strindberg( Book )

The dance of death by August Strindberg( Book )

18 editions published between 1966 and 2013 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hailed by Strindberg himself as his 'best play', 'The Dance of Death' seems paradoxically so - it is a dark and pessimistic depiction of a marriage in strife. The relationship between the main characters, Alice and Edgar, parallels that of Strindberg's sister, Anna, to her husband, Hugo, with the author's insertion of himself as 'Kurt', a man who covets Edgar's wife. 'The Dance of Death', written separately in two parts in 1900, is filled with vituperative argumentation and increasing violence between the couple, only made more complicated by the near-affair that Kurt has with Alice (and the questionable morality of Kurt's biographical connection with the author)

The father by August Strindberg( Book )

68 editions published between 1898 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strindberg's intense and unyielding play displays his suspicion of women at its most implacable, in a portrait of fierce marital discord and sexual conflict. The marriage of the Captain and his wife Laura is a livid, bitter struggle for power, as Strindberg explores the devastating force of the battle of the sexes. 'The Father' was written and first produced in 1887; this translation by Michael Meyer was first performed in 1964 at the Piccadilly Theatre, London
