This copiously annotated bibliography of 23,250 entries documents and examines the whole range of commentary on Strindberg’s works and activity in many fields besides the plays for which he is internationally best known. These include his prose fiction and poetry, his work as an historian and natural historian, and his relationship to the other arts, most notably his painting.

It is concerned with both lasting works of literary and dramatic criticism, as well as reviews of his books and plays in the theatre, and some more ephemeral material, all of this in several languages. Organised generically and by subject and individual work, the bibliography enables the reader to trace the changing impact of Strindberg and his works in various countries and during different periods.

It is thus very much a study in reception as well as a bibliographical record of published material. It traces the developing image of Strindberg and his writing both during his lifetime and in subsequent years, and with frequent cross reference offers a comprehensive overview of a literary and existential project that has rarely been matched for its multifaceted diversity.

The bibliography is published in three parts.

Michael Robinson is Emeritus Professor of Drama and Scandinavian Studies at the University of East Anglia, Norwich.

Reviews:

  • ‘In these three volumes Michael Robinson, already a renowned Strindberg scholar, has completed an exceptional work... The concise and informative annotations are an essential part of this remarkable bibliography, and there are cross-references to facilitate research projects ... Michael Robinson has performed an invaluable service with this bibliography, not only for those readers interested in Strindberg but for everyone who wants to have a sense of the international literary and cultural interchange that his works have generated.’ — Ross Shideler, Modern Language Review 105.2, 2010, 616-17 (full text online)
