By the open sea by August Strindberg( Book )

243 editions published between 1890 and 2020 in 6 languages and held by 2,446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Axel Borg of the present story, a man in his thirties, has been appointed superintendent of fisheries on one of the small islands in the Stockholm Archipelago. Like Strindberg at that age, he is a prophet without honor, his achievements having won him distinction only in foreign countries. On the island he has to combat pig-headedness and ignorance, and is settling down with much self-pity to a long grind, when that creature whom he classifies as only a short remove from the child comes to cause further disturbance - a woman. For a time the uninitiated will suspect that a pretty love story is in the make, but others will observe the scientific analysis which Borg applies to even his happiest moments
The red room : scenes of artistic and literary life by August Strindberg( Book )

412 editions published between 1879 and 2022 in 10 languages and held by 2,367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 road to Damascus, a trilogy by August Strindberg( )

30 editions published between 1904 and 2012 in English and held by 1,907 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

216 editions published between 1886 and 2020 in 7 languages and held by 1,049 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Swedish playwright and novelist August Strindberg led a remarkable life, oscillating from periods of institutionalization to an intense study of the occult and then back to working his creative magic as a producer of some of the most indelibly original plays of the twentieth century. The Son of a Servant is a profoundly moving coming-of-age novel that draws heavily on the author's own life experiences
A dream play by August Strindberg( Book )

281 editions published between 1900 and 2021 in 10 languages and held by 938 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 father by August Strindberg( Book )

92 editions published between 1898 and 2019 in 4 languages and held by 775 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
The Vasa trilogy : Master Olof, Gustav Vasa, Erik XIV. by August Strindberg( Book )

16 editions published between 1959 and 1966 in English and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dance of death by August Strindberg( Book )

33 editions published between 1966 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 719 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)
Gustav Adolf by August Strindberg( Book )

13 editions published between 1901 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gustav Adolf is Strindberg, but it is scarcely "modem drama." It is important for the understanding of the later Strindberg, but it cannot be called a drama for today's stage. In his lengthy introduction, Professor Johnson makes it clear that we are dealing with a Buch- drama

The saga of the Folkungs. Engelbrekt by August Strindberg( Book )

14 editions published between 1950 and 1967 in English and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The scapegoat by August Strindberg( Book )

6 editions published in 1967 in English and Undetermined and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a short novel in which Strindberg's major themes are covered very well with an almost tolerable dose of his misogynism (he went through three ugly divorces and some affairs). But the story itself is beautiful and reveals some of his characteristic criticisms of society
