Very Good. Rare First Edition. Miss Julia remains Strindberg's most famous work. In the history of drama, it is primarily canonized for its stylistic innovations. Its preface serves as a classic manifesto of late-nineteenth century naturalism. Strindberg is also venerated as a progenitor of the expressionist theater. Expressionist devices are present throughout Miss Julia and Strindberg's other works. Key examples include continual allusions to mystical forces, the use of symbology and ritualized dance, the backdrop of the pagan festival, and the construction of an absent, shadowy, and yet precipitating center of authority in the figure of the Count. Censored for its shocking content, Miss Julia revolves around a familiar Strindbergian encounter: a quasi-Darwinian struggle across sex and class lines. Top edge gilt. Brown cloth with gilt titling on front and spine. Corners bumped, with wear/rubbing at corners and top & tail of spine. Mild toning at ends; notations in pencil on rear free endpaper; otherwise interior is clean, crisp, tight & bright, unmarked. 90 pp. Approx. 5.5" x 8". A very nice copy and an excellent addition to your library. Carefully shipped in secure parcel. Ask all questions; glad to respond. Bookseller Inventory # 501456
