La stanza rossa

3.4 of 5 stars 3.40  ·  rating details  ·  845 ratings  ·  30 reviews
Come tutta la produzione di Strindberg, quest'opera reca il marchio di uno spirito creativo potente e tumultuoso. Essa ha segnato una tappa fondamentale non soltanto nell'evoluzione artistica di Strindberg, ma anche nella storia delle letterature dei paesi scandinavi, dove ha introdotto le tecniche del realismo naturalistico. Pubblicato nel 1879, La stanza rossa, che si is...more

I went on a tear on 2007 and read all of Henrik Ibsen and all of August Strindberg. Before I could get to all of Anton Pavlovich Chekhov, I had to turn back to writing, and I can't read while I write. Strindberg is wonderful. A bit more sarcastic than Ibsen and less tragedic. But both are great.
Though I'm not a big fan of Peer Gynt. Strindberg's parody of Peer Gynt, Lucky Per's Journey is a hoot. If you ever have a chance to see it performed, definitely go.

I haven't reviewed individual plays....more

"Червеният салон", Аугуст Стриндберг, прев. Теодора Джебарова, "Хемус груп", 2006 г.

Има такъв музей: посветен е на един кораб, драматично потънал в деня на своето спускане на вода през 1628 година и изваден след векове от дъното край бреговете на Стокхолм. Формата на сградата следва тази на съда, наречен "Васа", а съдържанието й отговаря на всичко, което на човек може да му хрумне покрай един стар военен кораб: кой и как го е създал, с как...more

Burocrazia levantina, stratificazione sociale di stampo vittoriano, ipocrisia, religiosità di facciata, furberie e malaffare.
Dove è riunito un simile coacervo di brutture? Nella Svezia di fine '800 che assomiglia a un girone dantesco, e dove uno spirito libero può solo scegliere la morte volontaria o l'omologazione.
Nonostante la traduzione ignobilmente arcaica si riesce a intuire la potente vena di satira sociale che Strindberg ha profuso in questo romanzo degno di Victor Hugo.
The Dickens influence is inarguable. Oh wait. I can't say I'm a big fan of Dickens, what with his superficial plots and Victorian humor. Strindberg tries the same techniques, and I suppose I would have gotten a bit more of the satire if I'd lived in 19th Century Sweden. Yeah, this books didn't do anything for me. I haven't read/seen any of Strindberg's plays, so I can't make comparisons. But the Red Room, supposedly Sweden's first modern novel, bored me to tears.
Платон не включва художниците в идеалната си държава- нищожността на изкуството като отражение на отражението, идеите са по-възвишени от сетивното, а художниците се опитват да предадат идеите чрез сетивното, т.е. връщане назад.
Всеки от героите, които решава да следва своите убеждения "ги надраства", т.е. принуден е да се върне към лицемерието и удобството на предишния си заможен и удобен живот. Уле се самоубива, тъй като вижда безсмислието, Ренйелм първо е принуден да парадира в театъра с произх...more
The Red Room is a strong social commentary of Sweden in the 1870's that was remarkable in its foreshadowing of Sweden in the 20th century. It was also remarkable in its depiction of the Bohemian nihilism in Sweden that was likewise present throughout Europe. A few quotations that I liked were:

1. Genius is the infinite capacity for taking pains.

2. In the world outside nations are bellowing with fury against oppression, but in Sweden all we do is to celebrate jubilees.

3. All [political] parties ha...more

Neobično iskustvo s ovom knjigom. Pola sam je pročitala a pola odslušala. To ne bi bio problem da je prevoditelj bio isti. Ali sve u svemu ovo je odlična knjiga. Iako je napisana 1879. godine može se slobodno primjeniti i na današnje društvo.
Glavni lik je Arvid Falk, mladi intelektualac koji se ne snalazi najbolje u svijetu prevara, fiktivnih poduzeća, lažnih dobroćinitelja, kvaziintelektualaca.
Likovi su blago karikirani. Podjeća me na Branislava Nušića.

Helt okej Stockholmsskildring, med ett digert och underhållande ordförråd. Tillsammans med det gammalsvenska språket blir Strindbergs ordval på ett förunderligt sätt målande och relevanta, även för 2013 års hipsters... I de första kapitlen var handlingen och sidorna svårsmälta, men sedan man vant sig med stilen fångades man upp i 1800-talslunken. Ett plus för hur platser och tidsandan får utrymme och beskrivs. Hög igenkänningsfaktor, även i jämförelse med dagens Sverige. Betyg: En svag 4 av 5. ;...more
This may not be the exact version I read in English or Deutsch but it's close enough.

Probably my only entry at goodreads for Strindberg as the rest of what I read by this author just, as this, didn't do anything for me.

This may have been an early or groundbreaking writing about gatherings of people discussing things in way not previously written about yet it never spoke to me. These disenchanted and rebelliously portrayed provocateur wannabee's just seem to complacent.

Похоже немного на русский роман 19-го века, только нет одного какого-то ярко выраженного главного героя. Удивительно ярко созданы образы людей, некоторые - откровенно глупые, до омерзения, другие - непонятно, положительно или отрицательно умные.
Крах надежд в коррумпированном зацикленном на чем-то ненастоящем и лживом обществе. Все добрые намерения и искренние побуждения сделать в жизни что-то хорошее упираются в стену людской низости или ленного равнодушия. Противно!
3.5 Sterne würde ich sagen. war wirklich gar nicht so schlecht vor allem der schwarze Humor und die satirischen Elemente haben mir gefallen xD aber es ist halt auch immer noch ein Klassiker und die Art zu schreiben kann hin und wieder anstrengend sein ...
Jeg har ikke lest den på originalspråket, men den norske oversettelsen fra 1995 vitner om edel champagne. Hvilken herlig bok, hvilke fornøyelige sleivspark, hvilken mester! Det er synd alle kjempene er døde. Men litteraturen etter dem dør ikke.
Philip Lane
I found this to be very confusing and difficult to follow. I really didn't get a clear idea of topic, plot or character. It is possibly a book that would improve with some sort of companion pointing the way. A disappointment for me.
Daniel Hagström
Underbar bok. En syrlig kritik av mycket. En bok som känns aktuell även idag. Jag har dragit mig länge från att läsa den, detta ångrar jag bittert och jag tror att jag kommer läsa om boken igen vid senare tillfälle.
A collection of young men in Stockholm, struggling artists, writers and actors who know each other. The main character Falk is a guy you feel sympathy for, but he seems a little too trusting both in friends and family.
Dieses Strindbergsche Gejammer ist für mich kaum zu ertragen. Das gilt für Das Rote Zimmer wie für seine Dramen. Oder frei nach August Strindberg: Es ist schade um die Bäume, die hierfür sterben mußten!
This is an earlier work, much milder, but still quite entertaining. Part of my family came from Stockholm around 1900, and this novel gave me plenty of aha so that explains that moments.
Sebastian Ek
Satire that stil feels relevant.
Too tied to time and place to be of more than background interest. Strindberg's plays are much much better. I read this in the "authorized" English translation of 1913.
Utmärkt satir med synnerligen visionär prosa. Sättet på vilket Strindberg skiftar scener påminner om och förekommer Virginia Woolf. En sann svensk romanklassiker!

Recommends it for: those interested to learn more about the past of Sweden.
I've never heard and known more about Sweden than now, I guess - the most interesting part for this subject: Olle's letter near to the end.
John Freeman
Considered one of the first "Modernist" novels, I can see how Strindberg influenced a later, more famous Scandinavian writer, Knut Hamsun.
Viktor Forssell
Fascinerande hur språket används, jag älskar b.l.a. hur Levin talar till Carl Niculaus på middagsbjudningen, alldeles innan han går.
Good portrayal of passionate youth trying to make it in various creative endeavors. Somewhat depressing towards the end though.

Intressant. Kanske inte direkt medryckande.
