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

36 editions published between 1909 and 1931 in German and Swedish and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A startling, intimate account of the early years of this celebrated author and philosopher. The peculiar warping of Strindberg's character had its beginning in childhood and boyhood, the periods so intimately described in this volume. No one can understand Strindberg who has not read this powerful book. "The Son of a Servant" is the first volume of the remarkable series of autobiographical novels by August Strindberg, The allusion in this title, as Edwin Bjorkman has pointed out, is twofold -- "to the author's birth, and to the position which fate, in his own eyes, seemed to have assigned him, both as man and as artist.""--Page 4 of cover
