A collection of three stories, all dealing with marital incompatibility, a doctor drawing on the experiences of his long life for examples to illustrate the pessimistic philosophy. A product of Strindberg's late years, when he had already slipped into a deep mental depression, this book is a poignant exposition of his feelings of misogyny.
