The Scapegoat

3.55  ·  Rating Details ·  11 Ratings  ·  2 Reviews
This is a short novel in which Strindberg's major themes are covered very well with an almost tolerable dose of his misogynism (he went through three ugly divorces and some affairs). But the story itself is beautiful and reveals some of his characteristic criticisms of society.
Hardcover, 175 pages
Published 1967 by Paul S. Eriksson, Inc.

A short novel by August Strindberg. Better paced than even his plays and none of the misogynistic rants you find in his other novels.
