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

A dream play by August Strindberg( Book )

15 editions published between 1958 and 1980 in Swedish and held by 27 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
Mäster Olof : prosaupplagan, mellandramat, versupplagan by August Strindberg( Book )

in Swedish and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Olof Persson was a Swedish clergyman whose contribution to the Protestant Reformation in Sweden forms the subject of August Strindberg's first major play. In 'Master Olof' - which Strindberg would revise many times over the years - we witness Persson's series of rebellions, first against the established Church, then against the king, Gustav, with whom he had previously sided, and finally, against the expectations of heroic martyrdom, a fate he eschews in favour of living on to spread the word of Lutheranism. This translation was first broadcast on BBC Radio 3 in January 1986
