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

24 editions published between 1904 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,702 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 dream play by August Strindberg( Book )

249 editions published between 1901 and 2019 in 8 languages and held by 898 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

A madman's manifesto. Le plaidoyer d'un fou by August Strindberg( Book )

164 editions published between 1893 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though remarkably creative, Swedish writer and artist August Strindberg had a very stormy personal life that was fraught with drama, controversy and scandal. In the 1890s, as his marriage to Finnish actress Siri von Essen was crumbling, Strindberg decided to air his side of the story in the guise of an autobiographical novel. The Confession of a Fool is a gritty, warts-and-all look at the demise of a marriage

The dance of death by August Strindberg( Book )

21 editions published between 1966 and 2013 in English and held by 704 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 )

76 editions published between 1898 and 2013 in English and Kannada and held by 676 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
