In Strindberg's classic, Miss Julie, the daughter of a powerful count enters into a dangerously flirtatious relationship with a footman on her father's estate. The critics have described Richard Nelson's adaptation as "tight, sharp, idiomatic." "He [Strindberg] is bold, this Swede. Never have I seen the aristocratism of serfs so lucidly portrayed. The idea of the play struck me forcibly, and the author's power awoke in me feelings of envy and surprise." -Maxim Gorky on MISS JULIE
"I read MISS JULIE back in the eighties (or early nineties). I know it, but I read it now again with great pleasure ... He is a remarkable writer. He has a quite unusual power." -Anton Chekhov
"I was born too soon to be greatly influenced by him as a playwright, but he [Strindberg] is among the greatest of the great ..." George Bernard Shaw
"Strindberg still remains among the most modern of moderns, the greatest interpreter in the theater of the characteristic spiritual conflicts which constitute the drama - the blood - of our lives today." -Eugene O'Neill

August Strindberg (1849-1912) is now seen as a pioneer of twentieth-century theatre and one of the world's great dramatists. During his lifetime, his obsessional treatments of insanity, sexual domination and the psychological warfare between men and women provoked incomprehension and abhorrence; today, his plays have taken on a new relevance and directness.Language Notes:
