Miss Julie: a naturalistic tragedy

Front Cover
Methuen Drama, Aug 10, 1992 - Drama - 47 pages
9 Reviews

Miss Julie is Strindberg's masterpiece, written at the height of his powers as a dramatist. It treats sexuality and human struggle with a frank realism previously unknown in the theatre. This volume also includes Strindberg's Preface to the play.

Helen Cooper's taut, contemporary stage version, which premiered in London in 1990 at the Greenwich Theatre, 'is fiercely faithful to the play's transfixing contradictions' (Independent) and 'marvellously brisk and demotic' (Time Out).

About the author (1992)

August Strindberg (1849-1912) is now seen as a pioneer of twentieth-century theatre and one of the world's great dramatists. During his lifetime, his obsessional treatments of insanity, sexual domination and the psychological warfare between men and women provoked incomprehension and abhorrence; today, his plays have taken on a new relevance and directness.
