Inferno, Alone, And Other Writings By August Strindberg Mmp (1968) Sprinchorn Tr For Sale

A 1968 1st mass market pb printing from Doubleday in very good condition with no marks, 429 pages.The narrator (ostensibly Strindberg, although his narrative variably coheres with and diverges from historical truth), spends most of the novel in Paris, isolated from his wife (Frida Uhl), children, and friends.He associates with a circle of Parisian artists and writers (including Paul Gauguin and Edward Munch), but often fears they are ridiculing and persecuting him.In his isolation, Strindberg successfully attempts alchemical experiments, and has his work published in prominent journals.He fears, however, that his secrets will be stolen, and his persecution mania worsens, believing that his enemies are attacking him with 'infernal machines.'He also dabbles in the occult, at one point casting a black magic spell on his own distanced daughter. Throughout his studies and adventures, Strindberg believes himself guided by mysterious forces (attributing them sometimes to God, Fate, or vaguer origins).When returning to Sweden to see his daughter, Strindberg is introduced to German mythology and the teachings of Swedenborg, which both influence his fatalistic beliefs and delusions.Through this new-found imagery, Strindberg sees his life as a living hell, hence the novel's title.Shipping and handling is $2.95 in US with others paying actual costs.($13.95 to most overseas countries and $7.95 to Canada by air) Please check out my sales this week on or at the link below.I try to get unusual items from estate sales, and make them available to Bimple Books customers worldwide, and I almost always ship the day after receiving your payment.
