AUGUST STRINDBERG (1849-), Swedish author, was born at Stockholm on the 22nd of January 1849.
In 1883 Strindberg left Sweden with his family, to travel in Germany, Italy, France and Denmark, writing for foreign reviews and producing various volumes of stories and articles.
Strindberg has provided a quantity of what is really autobiographical material, with an account of the origin of his various books, in the form of a novel, Tjensteqvinnans son (" The Son of a Servant," 1886-1887), with the sub-title of "A Soul's Development."
A number of criticisms on Strindberg from eminent hands are collected in En bok om Strindberg (Karlstad, 1894).
