Strindberg and Love

Eivor Martinus - HARDBACK Price: $39.95

A biography of August Strindberg and the women who loved him - Siri von Essen, Frida Uhl, Harriot Bosse and Fanny Falkner

Whenever he fell in love Strindberg always felt that he had surrendered his soul

He turned the women he adored into goddesses and so when they inevitably failed to live up to his idealised image of them he became disillusioned and fought back through his writing

He always believed he could transform the pain and loss into poetry and declared that his life was only material for dramas - mainly tragedies

This biography disects these relationships in all their complexity and builds a fascinating picture of a romantic literary genius and those who loved him
