Description

This is the first ever comprehensive photographic biography of Sweden’s most influential writer and playwright. Prominent scholar Björn Meidal and photo editor Bengt Wanselius have together created a unique account of August Strindberg and his life. This magnificent volume presents more than 500 contemporary photographs from Strindberg’s world – Stockholm, the archipelago, Berlin, Paris and all the other places that have contributed in shaping the world-renowned playwright and writer. Fifteen generously designed chapters chart Strindberg’s life and creative process, his encounters with love, friends and enemies and, not least, all his trips around Europe. The text is written with great knowledge and a generous dose of humour, by Professor Björn Meidal, one of the world’s foremost authorities on Strindberg. The abundance of photographs allows the reader to dive directly into Strindberg’s time.
