This short novel is a melancholic guide of Stockholm. It is a compendium of thoughts and reflections upon life from a peculiar character. It is a story of alienation and unrequited love. And it is also the story of a planned murder.

Although more than a hundred years old, this novel feels as fresh as if written yesterday. The only hint of its age are depictions of places in Stockholm that no longer exist and some obsolete debates (on abortion, for example), but otherwise the language doesn't fel

Το βιβλίο κυκλοφόρησε στα ελληνικά πριν λίγες μέρες, εγώ το αγόρασα σήμερα, το ξεκίνησα άμεσα και πριν λίγα λεπτά το τελείωσα κιόλας! Εντάξει, δεν είναι και κάνα τούβλο, άνετα διαβάζεται σε λίγες ώρες, αλλά πραγματικά με συνεπήρε και ουσιαστικά το διάβασα σε δυο "καθισιές". Πως κι έτσι; Απλά μου φάνηκε εξαιρετικά ενδιαφέρον, πολύ καλογραμμένο και ευκολοδιάβαστο, η προσωπική ημερολογιακή αφήγηση του ιδιαίτερου πρωταγωνιστή με βύθισε στον μελαγχολικό κόσμο της ιστορίας και σε μια Στοκχόλμη που χάθ ...more

I rather fell in love with this book. It’s concise—more a novella than a novel—and the plot is extremely simple, hardly more than a vehicle for the first person narrator’s dark philosophical meditations. But that doesn’t prevent it from being a compelling read.

The novel’s great strength is its voice. It takes the form of a series of diary entries over a few summer months in Stockholm, in an unidentified year close to the time of composition (it was published in 1905, apparently much to the épat

Escrito em forma de diário, retrata determinado período da vida de um médico sueco no início do século XX, designadamente os seus dilemas morais e desabafos sociais. Sou de opinião que há uma passagem do livro que resume muitos bem os dilemas com que o personagem principal, Tyko Gabriel Glas, é confrontado, designadamente em praticar o aborto e a eutanásia/homicídio.

Hjalmar Söderberg (1869 – 1941)

O sueco Hjalmar Söderberg (1869 – 1941), escritor, poeta, dramaturgo e jornalista publicou em 1905 o livro “O Doutor Glas”, que na edição portuguesa da Relógio DÁgua” tem uma brilhante introdução da escritora norte-americana Margaret Atwood.
“O Doutor Glas” é o diário do jovem médico Tyko Gabriel Glas, com cerca de trinta anos – que começa a 12 de Junho, algures no início do séc. XX, em Estocolmo, num Verão particularmente quente, com um calor sufocante, e que term

O Doutor Glas foi publicado, pela primeira vez, na Suécia em 1905, altura em que gerou polémica pela ousadia com que Hjalmar Söderberg fala de sexo e morte, tendo sido entendido como a apologia do aborto, eutanásia e assassínio.

Glas é um homem melancólico e solitário, que vive em conflito entre o dever como médico e o que ele pensa como pessoa. É um homem culto e uma alma sensível, que ama a Beleza, potenciada pelo seu amor à música e à literatura, e que abomina tudo o que é carnal, sujo, doente

It's a shame this novel isn't more readily available in the US. I read it for a Swedish literature course while I studied in Stockholm and fell in love with it before the end of the first page.

Usually diary novels come across as trite and forced, at least to me. While the whole concept of diary novels is rather dubious at best (can you recall pages of dialog you've had with people off the top of your head?), some do it better than others. Söderberg handles it masterfully; you'll find yourself ha

Sexual obsession and oppression, along with
abortion, euthanasia, murder, the tyranny of
religion and other condiments that make up Life,
are vividly explored in this startling psychological
novel first published in 1905. The solitary young
Dr. Glas must advise a woman whose minister husband
is a boor. Has he too much or too little carnal
knowledge?

Now I know why this caused so much controversy when it was published. All in all, definitely an interesting read.

I had to reread it because I'm writing a paper about it and I'd like to add trigger warnings for extreme ableism, quite some sexism and sexual assault. Just in case any of you felt like reading this.

For my swedish review, read further down.

This is a difficult book to review. I haven't had time to read a lot this week, but I think that has been in my favour because I've had time to consider and reflect about the content, and have realized what a philosophical author Söderberg was.

We get to follow the main character through his perception of the world, in the form of diary notes. He finds comfort in writing (so much that he actually doesn't get rid of them later on, even though he suspects t

I asked a friend who grew up in Sweden to recommend some Swedish literature, as I couldn't remember ever reading any. Söderberg was the first writer they mentioned. I subsequently found a lovely 1963 Chatto & Windus edition of ‘Doctor Glas’ in the university library, which was a delight to the senses. It has that lovely old books scent, satisfyingly thick paper, and appealing typography. It reminded me that modern bindings are of such inferior quality by comparison. I very much doubt that mo ...more

En lagom lång, existentiell berättelse om ett mer eller mindre rättfärdigat mord, moraliska frågor samt en släng eller två om de sociala positioner in i vilka folk tvingas genom gamla traditioner, inte alltför sällan av religiöst slag. Som har påpekats förr finns vissa kopplingar till Dostojevskijs Raskolnikov (Brott och Straff). Huvudkaraktären, doktor Glas, överväger mordet och tvekar fram och tillbaka, får viss ångest och paranoia efter att dådet är genomfört och verkar även lida vissa rent f ...more

Jag hade höga förväntningar på Doktor Glas och jag kan inte säga annat än att den levde upp till de förväntningarna. Språket är fantastiskt vackert på många sätt samtidigt som boken är skarpt och kärnfullt skriven utan onödiga utfyllnads-stycken. Min erfarenhet är att böcker från sekelskiftet och tidigare ofta har en lite annorlunda dramaturgi och är skrivna på ett lite mer högtravande och pratigt vis där någon berättar för mig om karaktärerna snarare än låter karaktärerna själva berätta eller v ...more

Hjalmar Söderberg would deserve more popularity.
"Doctor Glas" is a very interesting book for all those who are interested in morality and its corruption.

Although being written in an old fashioned style with an excessive use of an epistolary and diary form, this novel is extremely modern.
I would call it postmodern in a way.

Who else in 1906 would have spoken of issues such as abortion, euthanasia, suicidal tendencies and women's rights? Furthermore showing the points of view on these topics of a p

I have a soft spot for dark books. I have a particularly soft spot for dark books written at a time when they weren't acceptable. In some ways, with the screaming for moral purity hitting both sides of the political spectrum, we are heading that way again.

So: all the more reason to read fiction that breaks.

I read this in a day, in Stockholm, glancing in the direction of places and neighbourhoods as they were mentioned. Something writhed in this narrative: obviously, the thoughts of a twisted, re

Doktor Glas är som en dystrare, modernare parafras på Brott och Straff av Dostojevskij. Huvudpersonen, doktor Glas, begår ett mord som han motiverar utifrån något slags moraliskt resonemang, precis som Raskolnikov. Där upphör dock likheterna, för doktorn plågas inte speciellt mycket av sitt samvete och beter sig inte dumt och förvirrat, utan tvärtom väldigt professionellt och kallblodigt.

Huvudpersonen i boken befinner sig i ett slags moraliskt vakuum. Han styrs av principer i sin yrkesutövning,

Embora tenha sido escrita nos inícios do século XX, a obra mais famosa do escritor sueco Hjalmar Soderberg é de extrema atualidade. Abordar temas como o aborto ou o suicídio ou a eutanásia ou até mesmo o homicídio justificado como forma de esperança e recriação do ser, que ainda geram polémicas, o que dizer sobre ficcionar estas temáticas em plena belle-époque?

She goes to doktor Glas about her troubles of carrying out her wifely duties in the bedroom, she is inlove with another man but trapped in a loveless marriage and is basically forced to be intimate with her husband every night.

You should, if you are able to of course,read this in Swedish, as the choice of tone is demonstrated and enhanced through the usage of quirky Swedish language from that time,(1905). Beyond a case of obsessive behaviour (as someone posted on here), it's a tale of protest. Protesting authority and an individual representative's abuse of power, manipulation, and control. The outlet for this doctor is to use his version of the same.
A sobering read.

Så vi har en eländig huvudkaraktär med moralkval och i slutändan är vi bara en i mängden. Alla får med andra ord inte sitt lyckliga slut. Yeey! Känner mig så optimistisk nu i efterhand... Eller inte.

Hjalmar Emil Fredrik Söderberg was a Swedish novelist, playwright, poet and journalist. His works often deal with melancholy and lovelorn characters, and offer a rich portrayal of contemporary Stockholm through the eyes of the flaneur. Söderberg is greatly appreciated in his native country, and is sometimes considered to be the equal of August Strindberg, Sweden's national author.
