Inferno & From an Occult Diary ePub and PDF Available
Am I veer glad I read the introduction to this book before I got into the text. Otherwise I would have declared Strindberg an absolute nut case!But, as the intro mentioned, he was depressed, with with chemicals (trying to create gold - the old alchemist's goal), drinking heavily and mostly absinth (which at that time contained chemicals that have been taken out for today's product), deep in debt, had two failed marriages, AND was a fiction writer.The last makes a lot of difference in the reading.

The translator shows several extracts from the diary that Strindberg used to create Inferno and it's extremely obvious that the writer in him took precedence over the realist.Most of the original entries have been emotionally inflated or even rewritten to sound more serious than they really were.So things weren't nearly as bad as Strindberg makes them in Inferno.

Nevertheless, the guy sounds crazy.Even more so in From an Occult Diary in which he obsesses over his last wife and their breakup.He thinks that he connects with her through thoughts and that she visits him every night in that form (after, of course, she was living elsewhere).When she marries again, he "refuses" to allow her to come to him for "eros" because that would be adultry.You really have to read this to believe it.

So unless you are a Strindberg fan, don't bother.I liked it for the insight it gave me into his work.
