Strindberg--other sides: seven plays
The Ghost Sonata is a keystone in the construction of the expressionist theatre; in The Pelican Strindberg goes "over the top" with his own from of psychological drama until it soars beyond the realm of realism; The Dance of Death is a battle of the sexes rendered absurd, as a series of games played against the void; and Carl XII is an epic play portraying the last months of the king who brought Sweden's history as a great power to an end.
