Röda rummet utkom hösten 1879 och inleds med det bevingade voltaireska mottot om det obehagliga i att bli hängd i tysthet. Romanen uppmärksammades omedelbart för sin djärva, friska samtidssatir och blev August Strindbergs stora och hett åtrådda litterära framgång som med ens öppnade portarna till teatern och bokförlagen. Handlingen kretsar kring unga revoltörer i samhället ...more

My all time favourite Strindberg! Walking the streets of Stockholm can never be the same again once this novel gets under your skin. The pubs, the parks, the cold wind, the meaningless dialogues, everything reminds you of the restless soul whose inconvenient and politically incorrect quotes now decorate Drottninggatan, The Queen's Road. The Queen of Stockholm today: shopping! Strindberg would have had something to say about the cheap commercialism that defines the street where his museum is to b ...more

Opening lines:
It was an evening in the beginning of May. The little garden on "Moses Height," on the south side of the town had not yet been thrown open to the public, and the flower-beds were still unturned. The snowdrops had worked through the accumulations of last year's dead leaves, and were on the point of closing their short career and making room for the crocuses which had found shelter under a barren pear tree; the elder

Нямаше как да не потърся тази книга. Четох биографична книга на Амос Оз и видях как всички от фамилията четат Стриндберг. Четох биографична книга на Елиас Канети и пак същото – често споменаван автор е Стриндберг. С рецензията на Нева Мичева любопитството ми нарасна още повече. Но мислех, че може да е среща с онези скучни философи и теоретици от 19 век. А то – „сълза и смях“.

След главата „Между братя“ очаквах по-често да виждам Арвид Фалк в следващите части (удобно отделени с оригинални заглави

Из архивите - рецензия за в. "Гласове".

Не само за разтуха
"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 г. 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 какво с

Ho provato a farmi piacere questo libro, ma non ci sono proprio riuscita. Anche sforzandomi di andare oltre tutti i difetti, o, meglio, tutti i lati che non mi hanno appassionata e che mi hanno reso difficoltosa la lettura, non sono comunque arrivata ad apprezzare questa storia, se non in poche, limitate sezioni e riflessioni.
Lo stile è puramente modernista, dunque l'autore ha un ruolo davvero minimo e lascia che sia la storia a svilupparsi autonomamente, senza dare un senso preciso o una scans

La crudele satira del fallimento di una generazione

Non so se mi sbaglio, ma ritengo che un sentimento piuttosto comune quando si pensa ad autori scandinavi, e ai classici dell’800 e del primo ‘900 in particolare, sia quello di associar loro una cifra stilistica caratterizzata dal rigore, dall’asciuttezza e da un certo formalismo, insomma da quelle caratteristiche che molti giovani (ma non solo) recensori che troviamo in rete chiamerebbero lentezza e pesantezza del testo. Molti di costoro (almeno

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.

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.

Много мыслей об этом романе...
И как-то все они толпятся в прихожей, не решаясь войти и расположиться, представиться, обозначить себя.

Скажу, в чём уверена, – роман великий.

Пока я не подводила итоги года, но возможно, этот роман назову главным для себя в 2017 году.

Тихий голос повествователя, осмысленная речь, полнокровные живые герои, всё по-настоящему.

Кратко, что искать в романе, – историю взросления личности, сатиру на современное автору общество, философию творчества, анализ социально-экономиче
