A two volume collection of Strindberg's letters, in English, which provides a comprehensive view of his life and work. Strindberg is now recognized as a major figure in modern drama, and has been influential for film and theatre artists from Artaud and the German Expressionists to Ingmar Bergman and Woody Allen. The letters help to explain Strindberg's seminal force and testify to his broad range of interests, energies and imaginative instincts. They also form an essential part of their author's oeuvre, being regarded by Strindberg himself as an integral component of his autobiographical project. The letters are supported by an extensive introduction and notes.
