The road to Damascus : a trilogy by August Strindberg( Book )

6 editions published between 1958 and 2006 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

August Strindberg's classic trilogy of plays entitled To Damascus (also known as The Road to Damascus) is known as his greatest work. A very complex and thought provoking play series, it follows the conversations between two characters: the Stranger and the Lady. An excerpt from the Introduction: The Road to Damascus might be termed a marriage drama, a mystery drama, or a drama of penance and conversion, according as preponderance is given to one or other of its characteristics. The question then arises: what was it in the drama which was of deepest significance to the author himself? The answer is to be found in the title, with its allusion to the narrative in the Acts of the Apostles of the journey of Saul, the persecutor, the scoffer, who, on his way to Damascus, had an awe-inspiring vision, which converted Saul, the hater of Christ, into Paul, the apostle of the Gentiles. Strindberg's drama describes the progress of the author right up to his conversion, shows how stage by stage he relinquishes worldly things, scientific renown, and above all woman, and finally, when nothing more binds him to this world, takes the vows of a monk and enters a monastery where no dogmas or theology, but only broadminded humanity and resignation hold sway

"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
