Description:

This book offers a detailed critical analysis of Strindberg's major works in performance, created after his psychic upheaval, which he called his "Inferno." Ranging from the early productions of Max Reinhardt and Olof Molander to the reinterpretations of Robert Lepage, Robert Wilson, and Ingmar Bergman, the study explores the crucial impact of this dramatist's method of playwriting. Each chapter ends with a section devoted to innovative Strindberg performances on the contemporary stage.
