By far Strindberg's most aggressive work. The Father is a feverish nightmare of the struggle he saw between defiant masculinity and the "treacherous weakness" of women. Plays for Performance Series.

About the Author
August Strindberg (1849-1912) is best-known for his misogyny and as the author of Miss Julie (1889). His first success came as a novelist and autobiographer. His plays (and he wrote over sixty) were deeply controversial in their time and still are to some extent. They range form bold naturalism (e.g. The father, 1887) to an entralling expressionism (e.g. The Ghost Sonata, 1907).
