The red room : scenes of artistic and literary life by August Strindberg( Book )
328 editions published between 1899 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 1,185 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
A dream play by August Strindberg( Book )
274 editions published between 1901 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 1,183 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

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.

Swedish novelist and playwright August Strindberg led a tumultuous life defined by giddy heights and despairing depths.

The dance of death by August Strindberg( Book )
18 editions published between 1966 and 2013 in English and held by 650 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 )
68 editions published between 1898 and 2013 in English and Kannada and held by 391 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
