KIRKUS REVIEW

Alan Harris has provided a brief biographical and critical introduction to this erratic Swedish genius, whose domestic dramas have stood the test of time, and who ranks in many critical opinions, with Dostoyevsky and Eugene O'Neill. His personality problems are discussed in relation to his writings,- his preoccupation with class, his resentment of poverty, of childhood disabilities, his denunciatory self exposure, his bitterness regarding women and marriage...The eight plays are these:- The Father, Miss Julia, Gustavus Vasa, The Spook Sonata, The Link, The Stranger, There Are Crimes and Crimes, and The Dance of Death.
