Strindberg, August (b. 1849)

Strindberg, August, the most noted of modern Swedish writers, born at Stockholm; accumulated stores of valuable experience during various early employments, which he utilised in his first successful work, “The Red Room” (1879), a satire on social life in Sweden, “The New Kingdom” (1882), equally bitter in its attack on social conventions, got him into trouble, and since then his life has been spent abroad; “Married Life,” a collection of short stories, brought upon him a charge of “outraging Christianity,” but after trial at Stockholm, in which he eloquently defended himself, he was acquitted; a prolific writer in all kinds of literature, and imbued with modern scientific and socialistic ideas, his writings lack the repose necessary to the highest literary achievement; (b. 1849).
