Plays from the Cynical Life : Playing With Fire, Debit and Credit, Mother Love, The First ning, Facing Death, Pariah, Simoon (English and Swedish Edition)

The plays in this volume are one-act dramas based on human situations as conceived and interpreted by Strindberg at a time when he was convinced human beings are essentially selfish, self-centered creatures. All of them have been presented successfully in Swedish and other Scandinavian theaters. The situations are surely typical: peoples willingness to claim credit for a fellow human beings success, a mothers manipulation of her daughters life, a wifes indifference to her mate except when others obviously wan him, denigration of a mate for ones own purposes, indifference to rationalization of ones sins, playing with ones own and others emotions, and the unhesitant destruction of a fellow human being, at least partly in the name of religion. Written tod the end of his pre-Inferno period, Strindberg labelled these plays one-acters out of cynical life. [En aktare. Ur det chniska livet]. Translations of two other plays - "The Stronger" and "The Bond" - which belong to this group were included in Pre-Inferno Plays (University of Washington Press, 1970). In translating these plays, Walter Johnson has presented American versions, faithful to the original and expressed in languages as idiomatic and natural as the original Swedish.
