Strindberg Plays 2 - The Dance of Death & A Dream Play & The Stronger


August Strindberg trans Michael Meyer

Published by Methuen

This volume contains two of Strindberg's best-known plays from the years following his mental breakdown ...

Tthe expressionist masterpiece A Dream Play (1901), which he described as 'my most beloved play, child of my greatest pain'

And both parts of The Dance of Death (1900), a terrifying analysis of a tormented marriage

'It leaves an astonishing, an almost unaccountable, impression of genius ... as a beggar's cloak full of holes may have a kind of majestic beauty when the wind fills it, so this broken drama, having unmistakably the winds of vision in it, has beauty and dignity and power' ~ The Times, 1928

Also included is his earlier short play The Stronger (1889), a fascinating study of the power of personality

"Michael Meyer is the translator most actors turn to when seeking a definitive text" ~ Sunday Times
